Direct or indirect supplier?


Dirk Riehle
 

Hi,

Germany has a new law about diligence in the supply chain, basically to watch out that no supplier violates human rights.

We like to talk about open source projects being suppliers, but I'm not sure that legally speaking this is true.

As a consequence, what is the relationship between a company contributing to an open source project with the company using it? Is that a direct supplier relationship? An indirect one? None at all?

Thanks, Dirk
