Bird & Bird, Black Duck and Clearvision's 'Risk & Compliance: Managing Open Source' webinar

30 September 2010

The rise of open source software* (OSS) use within the business environment combined with recent legal actions has raised industry awareness that open source code must be managed in compliance with applicable software licenses. Companies are now establishing policies around open source usage and implementing engineering development processes which ensure that software products remain in compliance.

In this webinar, co-hosted by Black Duck Software, Bird & Bird and Clearvision, we will discuss:

  • OSS use in a business environment
  • Governance of OSS
  • Reactive Governance & Proactive Governance
  • OSS policy development
  • Inbound and outbound compliance processes
  • How to automate the management of OSS

Attendees will also receive the exclusive whitepaper Seven Best Practices for Managing Software Intellectual Property which describes a number of measures that companies can use to avoid the risks and gain the benefits of development with OSS.

*Gartner predict that by 2011, 80% of organisations will have open source code within their own software, whether they are aware of it or not.

We hope you can join us.
