Seminars on Open-Source Governance

Training for license-compliant delivery of products that contain open-source code

Product vendors that include open-source software in their products need to fulfill the obligations put upon them by the licenses of the open-source code they are using. Otherwise, an immediate sales and distribution stop could be enforced.

Summary

In this full-day seminar, you will learn everything you need to know about license-compliant delivery of products that contain open-source software. It provides an integrative perspective that shows how the legal counsel, the engineering department, and the person or office tasked with managing open source work together best. It is therefore suitable for all main stakeholders.
