The OpenChain Project is delighted to announce that our Japan Work Group has produced a series of case-studies in English and Japanese from named and anonymous members of the local group. These case studies follow a shared format and outline key challenges and useful approaches.
“It is impossible to overstate the value of the case studies provided by the OpenChain Japan Work Group,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “This material provides the local and international market with some tangible insights into how key stakeholders in the field manage open source compliance.”

These case studies will be released twice a week in the lead-up to the Open Source Summit Japan event (June 20-22 in Tokyo). You can be part of this process and part of the larger Japan Work Group activities through participating in our forthcoming ad-hoc meeting on the 8th of June and the next formal meeting at the Toyota Midland Square facility in Nagoya on the 13th of June.
