Open source is a kind of "bill of rights" outlining key protections for software users and developers. As we move into the world of web services, in which software is no longer distributed as either binaries OR source code, but instead performed on a remote server, what kind of bill of rights is required to protect users? What kind of agreements will provide web services users and developers with some of the protections that we have come to expect from open source? In this panel, Tim O'Reilly will ask some leading web services developers to grapple with this thorny issue.
