The Legalities of Open-Source Software 101: Mitigating Legal Risk

March 24

Software has conquered the world, and open-source software (OSS) is a large part of the reason why. Software companies, hardware manufacturers, and SaaS providers leverage open-source software in their products, but legal teams and outside counsel are often ill-prepared to understand the potential issues, rendering them unable to provide guidance in evaluating and mitigating legal risks. Join us as we cover the basics of open-source software, discuss the licensing and security-related risks associated with open-source use, and provide you with a starting point for setting legal best practices around the use of open-source software.
