What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About Open Source

Data shows that most companies are greatly undercounting their use of open source software.

This is leading to potential legal and security concerns that need to be respected and tracked. Additionally, trends tell us companies are expecting higher levels of compliance. This begs the question, what is the legal team's role in managing compliance and security vulnerabilities associated with open source? There's a real and immediate need for legal counsel to understand OSS and the accompanying legal obligations and potential business impact. This is true for large enterprises as well as small-to-medium sized businesses. Open source licenses are just like other licenses, meaning there is tremendous value in keeping an accurate inventory--aka bill of materials (BOM)--of open source software and licenses, both from a security and compliance perspective. Open source management is also an important part of day-to-day operations for Merger & Acquisition (M&A) and security response. Join Marty Mellican, Associate General Counsel at Flexera, as he discusses the need for process and lawful management of OSS.
