Program Date

Mark Radcliffe, a partner at DLA Piper, and Andrew Aitken, managing partner of Olliance Group, provide an overview of the release of General Public License Version 3 and the use of open source technology by enterprise. Open source software is now widely used by corporations. However, its use may cause serious legal problems such as requiring the release of the source code of commercial software if such use is not properly managed. This program includes a detailed summary of the new terms of the GPLv3, as well as other major open source licenses, and an overview of the commercial ecosystem of open source software.
