Working with Open Source Code: Legal Lunch & Learn
In today’s digital world, most people assume that if they found something online they are free to use it however they want. In most situations, this assumption cannot be further from the truth. This is especially true for open source code. Although open source code is routinely provided without financial hooks, open source code may be associated with contractual hooks that limit how the source code is used, especially in commercial settings. Accordingly, during the workshop we discuss the pitfalls to watch out for when using open source code to develop software. We will also look at other ways to protect software separate from licensing constraints.
