Open Source Software
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW
It has become unrealistic for most businesses to avoid the use of open source software. Managing the use of open source software can, however, raise unique legal concerns not faced in the management of traditional proprietary software. Starting with a review of the legal foundations for open source software licenses, this session will cover current legal issues around open source software and discuss the legal and practical concerns generated those issues. The session will also present practical lessons learned in the field and best practices for compliance with open source software licenses. This session is designed to be of value both to those new to the field of open source software license compliance as well as seasoned open source compliance experts. 1 CLE $20, Lunch $10 (turkey, veggie, club or salad w/ or w/o meat)
