Understanding Licensing Where Open Source & Proprietary Software Converge

Track: BOF
Date: Wednesday, July 28
Time: 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Salon A


Moderated by Karen Copenhaver, Black Duck Software

Many common myths have arisen around what's "kosher" in terms of reuse of OSS, especially when the software being developed is proprietary. During this BOF, we'll discuss topics such as new trends in OSS licensing, dig into how to manage multiple licenses and talk about how Open Source Review Committees are working out for many companies.
