OpenChain Project to Feature at the Fifth Annual DLA Piper Global Intellectual Property Symposium
SAN FRANCISCO, United States, October 16, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured in talks by Endo San from Toyota at the Fifth Annual DLA Piper Global Intellectual Property Symposium in Nagoya on the 17th of October and Tokyo on the 19th of October.
“The OpenChain Project benefits from knowledgable and proactive members,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “These two talks will share Toyota’s experience around open source compliance, intellectual property matters and more. I am delighted that the OpenChain Project is part of this story and that it will be shared with a wider audience.”
The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.
The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.
The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.
