Open source software (OSS) is ubiquitous, yet OSS legal issues are often misunderstood or not even identified in the first place. This webinar will provide a primer on OSS legal matters. Among other things, this webinar will discuss:

  • legal principles behind OSS licensing;
  • key legal issues in the most widely-used OSS licenses;
  • how to enhanceĀ compliance with OSS licenses;
  • how to conduct OSS audits;
  • how to avoid and respond to open source enforcement claims; and
  • conducting due diligence and related M&A issues related to open source software licenses.
