Laurie Glapa (Stinson Leonard Street LLP), Patrick Pazderka and Jon Stechmann (Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly LLP) will provide an introduction to open source software and attendant legal issues. Today’s businesses (even those outside the software and technology industry) are using free and open source software in their products and services at an increasing rate. As counsel, it is important to understand the risks and obligations associated with the use of these free resources. This presentation will cover common open source licenses, the role of open source software due diligence in M&A work, the need for effective open source policies, and common open source issues in contracts.


The Computer and Technology Section Council will meet at 11:30 a.m. followed by lunch and the CLE at Noon.
