Bird & Bird and Black Duck are pleased to invite you to their 'Open Source Compliance: Navigating the Complexities of the GPL' breakfast seminar
Over half of the more than one million open source projects available on the Internet use GPL licenses (GPL, LGPL and AGPL). They are the most widely-used open source licenses in the world. Many open source-savvy companies confidently integrate valuable software made available under these licenses into their development environments and internal operations, as well as their outbound products and services. However, the GPL family of licenses is “restrictive,” which means that certain conditions must be met when developing code.
The topics that will be covered at this seminar are:
- Current open source trends
- A high-level overview of the most popular OSS licenses
- A deep dive into the GPL license, its obligations, and common assumptions
The importance of AGPL in SaaS and cloud computing.
