The use of open source has surpassed the occasional and solidified itself as the standard. In fact, the Black Duck by Synopsys 2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis found that 96% of the applications we scanned last year contained open source components. It’s increasingly difficult to properly manage open source in an organization to ensure compliance with the over 2,000 different licenses in use today and defend against new vulnerabilities, which surface frequently.
But say you’ve already gotten a handle on the open source your organization has in-house, and you’re through remediating any issues that came up during your code scan. Now what? How do you ensure you avoid surprises the next time around and fully leverage your investment?
Releasing open source software and managing the open source you use
Join top open source legal experts Mark Radcliffe (partner at DLA Piper and general counsel for the Open Source Initiative) and Tony Decicco (shareholder at GTC Law Group & Affiliates) on Oct. 17 at 12 p.m. EDT as they discuss effective policies for managing and releasing open source in your company. In this webinar, Mark and Tony will answer these questions and more:
- What are key aspects of an effective open source / third-party software policy for both inbound use and outbound contributions?
- What are key success factors for effectively releasing code as open source?
- How does this play out in transaction due diligence and integration following an acquisition?
