Open source software is the foundation of all modern technology. Anyone who’s building software is building on top of open source software—and dependent upon the community of people who build and maintain it.
We counsel clients on how to engage with open source profitably and responsibly, including:
Navigating open source licenses and how they apply to your product
Implementing open source compliance policies and practices
Writing contracts for the development of open source technologies
Accounting for open source compliance in technology transactions, including mergers and acquisitions
Publishing and contributing to open source projects
Establishing and participating in nonprofit open source foundations
