The OpenChain Project will be taking center stage during the Risk and Compliance in Open Source panel at the Nordic OpenInfra Days on the 3rd of October.
“Amanda Brock will chair the panel and consider what is risk in open source and what does it take to make software Trustable from a legal and compliance perspective. The Linux Foundation’s OpenChain compliance project has rapidly gained traction and is supported by companies like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Intel, Toyota and Scania. Andrew Katz from Orcro, a Linux Foundation partner, has been advising companies on open source compliance for many years, and draws on the practical experience he has with clients large and small in discussing this. Martin Von Willebrand will consider how to implement an end-to-end automated open source compliance tool chain and Professor Björn Lundell will highlight findings and challenges from extensive research related to clarifying terms (and obtaining patent licences) for use of IT standards allowing for implementation in open source projects.”
