A Quick Survey of OSS Licenses, Tools, and Compliance - Sean Hudson, Mentor Graphics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Professionally, I frequently have to explain OSS licenses to customers. Recently,
this has increased, in part, due to Linux is finding its way into so many
'small', yet capable, devices. Also, the influx of new development caused by
the recent IoT trend has added to that need.

In this talk, I will provide a quick survey of the OSS licenses that exist
today, some of the history behind them, and what, from an engineer's
perspective, those licenses mean. After dicussing the types of licenses, I
will also discuss some of the tools used to check for OSS compliance and some
general rules for best practice.
