The OpenChain Project is delighted to announce the release of an Open Source Policy Template for organizations seeking to conform to the OpenChain Specification. This template has been contributed from Moorcrofts Law Firm and Orcro Compliance in the UK and has been extensively reviewed by the OpenChain Project community.
The focus of this template is to help apply the key requirements for a quality open source compliance program. It provides sample policy text that helps organizations select, classify, incorporate and publish open source code with a focus on legal compliance of open source. Companies may need to consider others matters related to business requirements, engineering requirements and inter-organization / inter-project relationships when completing their own open source policy. You can obtain broader reference policy material from the TODO Group, a sister project to OpenChain at the Linux Foundation.
