December 15: Webcast - Resources for Interpreting Open Source Licenses

While open source is very broadly used, few cases have been decided to assist in interpreting affiliated open source licenses. A structured approach to compliance is critical. Where does a company look for guidance on complying with the various aspects of open source licenses?
This webinar will review the efforts of the community to provide this information from OpenChain to SPDX to the recent whitepapers by SFLC and FSF/Software Conservancy.
Attendees will learn:
• Brief introduction to open source software
• Identification of resources to help you get started and maintain a current understanding of license implications.
