The Legalities of Open Source Software 101: Mitigating Legal Risk

Gain an understanding of different open-source software issues.

Oracle's claims against Google on the use of certain Java programming interfaces in the Android operating system pose unique issues relative to the use of open-source software and open-source compliance programs. In this Webinar, our panel will address the following issues: • The copyright issues in the Google v Oracle case on appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court, and the legal implications of the Court's decision (if issued prior to the Webinar) • The implications of copyright protection for application programing interfaces (API's) for use of free and open source software and compliance with open source licenses • The importance of conducting regular source code audits to ensure continuous compliance with open source license obligations • Best practices for designing and implementing appropriate open source compliance policies and processes to address copyright risks associated with the use of APIs and open source software
