Open Source Legal Blues: Do You Comply? Understanding and Reducing Open Source License Risks
WhiteSource, the leading provider of SaaS Open Source Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced open registration for a webinar November 13th, titled “Open Source Legal Blues: Do You Comply? Understanding and Reducing Open Source License Risks“.
Haim Ravia, renowned IP legal expert, with Pearl Cohen Zedek Latzer, a leading international law firm specializing in intellectual property strategy, will introduce the legal risks with Open Source Software (OSS), and will discuss how these issues can interfere with software release cycles, as well as business partnerships and acquisitions.
In today’s business climate, using OSS components as part of the development of new products is imperative. It is becoming increasingly important to have clear visibility into your open source inventory at all times, to be able to make informed decisions and take actions in real time – not after the fact. The key is to reduce OSS risks.
Rami Sass, WhiteSource Co-Founder and CEO, will provide an overview of WhiteSource Software solution and will demonstrate how you can affordably manage your open source life cycle, evaluate potential problems early on, and quickly reducing risks and costs.
With WhiteSource, new open source components are automatically detected when first used, and classified by their license type and risk profile. This allows the organization to immediately address the respective risks and license requirements, rather than wait until release time, thereby risking substantial development effort, and unnecessary delays. WhiteSource integrates seamlessly and can automatically enforce organizational open source policy with leading development tools such as Apache maven, Apache Ant, Jenkins, JetBrains TeamCity, RedHat OpenShift, CloudBees and JFrog Artifactory.
The session will cover:
- Open source legal, business, and technical risks
- How to effectively manage the open source adoption process, review procedures, and compliance requirements
- How to do so without impacting development and release schedules, and without spending a small fortune
