The OpenChain Project was featured in two talks at the Korean Copyright Conference on the 27th of June. This event, hosted by the Korean Copyright Commission, ran adjacent to a Public Domain event, and in combination the local audience was provided with broad context regarding open approaches to sharing intellectual capital.
Masato Endo from Toyota and Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager, discussed a series of topics ranging from Open Source Software Supply Chain Management through to the growing corpus of reference material available for companies and their suppliers to get context for effective license management.
This event comes hot on the heels of our second OpenChain Korean Work Group meeting and solidifies our growing exposure to this dynamic, fast growing technology market. The third OpenChain Korea Work Group meeting is scheduled to be hosted by SK Telecom in September and will continue our advocacy and preparation work in advance of graduating from a de facto industry standard to a formal ISO standard in 1H 2020.
