IPR Due Diligence in Open Source: How Good is Good Enough? - Shane Couglan, Open Invention Network
Open Source is collaborative development governed by licenses. It inherently involves using and re-distributing a large amount of third-party IPR. This talk explores how this situation can be effectively managed by businesses, and to what extent they need to adhere to community norms as well as the letter of licenses. It is targeted towards business decision-makers, project managers and lawyers who have to approve Open Source use. No prior knowledge of Open Source licensing is required.
