Regarding the note I informed you in the previous email, I have made the following changes due to comments from others.

◆The answers to the FAQ are based on business practices of Japan WG FAQ Subgroup members in Japan. The interpretation on OSS license may vary depending on the customary practice and/or judicial district. Consult your company or organization's intellectual property counsel for specific issues.

Shane and Ouchi
I agree that there is much good information in the document. The responses are well thought out and may be directly implementable after review with Legal.

However, I do see that there may also be some inconsistencies in interpretation both at a country and individual company level.

Would you consider perhaps overall disclaimer for the FAQ responses that directs the reader to discuss application of the specific issue and answer with the Company or Organization’s Intellectual Property Legal Counsel? That Legal Counsel would be responsible to determine the precise interpretation under the Country and Company laws or policies.

Interested in SBOM? Registration open for SPDX DocFest on Jan 27th

 

From Rose Judge over on the SPDX list:

SPDX is hosting another DocFest on January 27th from 7-11 AM PST. The purpose of this event is to bring together producers and consumers of SPDX documents and discuss differences between tool output and understanding for the same software artifacts.

Specifically, the goals of this DocFest are to:
1) come to agreement on how the fields should be populated for a given artifact
2) identify instances where different use cases might lead to different choices for fields and structures of documents
3) assess how well the NTIA SBOM minimum elements are covered
4) create a set of reference SPDX SBOMs as part of the corpus for further tooling evaluation.

This event will require "sweat equity" – participants who can produce SPDX documents are expected to have generated at least one SPDX document from the target set (either source, built from source, built image or container equivalent). Participants who consume SPDX documents are expected to run at least two SPDX documents through their tooling and share any analysis results. Those who have signed up and have submitted files by January 21, 2022 will receive a meeting invite to the DocFest.

To indicate interest to participate, please fill in the following form:

Japan Work Group: New Series in ITMedia

 

The OpenChain Japan Work Group has collaborated with ITMedia Inc. to produce a new series of articles covering open source and issues around compliance. The first article, by Endo San of Toyota, covers the strategic use of open source and legal risks involved in the enterprise space. OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230, SPDX ISO/IEC 5962 and other LF initiatives like OpenSSF feature heavily.

Onward Security Is the Latest Official OpenChain Project Partner

 

OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020 has a positive and active relationship with the security sector. Onward Security is our latest official partner and will bolster this part of our ecosystem support.

“Most IoT devices are developed with open source software, and the lack of security by design during product development and the integration of vulnerable third-party OSS into IoT devices are potentially fatal problems. Onward Security is pleased to partner with OpenChain to assist with ISO/IEC 5230 compliance assessment by offering HERCULES SecSAM, a Security Assessment Management platform, as well as security compliance services,” said Morgan Hung, General Manager of Onward Security.

“The OpenChain Project released a Security Assurance Reference Guide in August to address market demand. While our ISO/IEC standard is focused on open source license compliance, the inflection points it identifies are equally application to successful security process management,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “Our new relationship with Onward Security is another part of the larger picture to ensure every company, in every sector, of every size can get the information and support they need to excel.”

About Onward Security

Onward Security is a leading brand in cybersecurity compliance solutions for the Internet of Things. It has been selected as Best Cybersecurity Company – Asia Gold Winner by Cyber Security Excellence Awards. In addition to possessing an international IoT cybersecurity testing lab, it develops automated security assessment products with AI and machine learning features.

OPENCHAIN CALENDAR 2022

 

We “rebooted” the OpenChain Global Calendar for 2022. This allowed our community to remove any orphan invitations lingering in clients. Our refreshed calendar is now going live.

You can add the whole calendar to your productivity client of choice. This is our recommended method to ensure orphan invitations are minimized:
https://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?src=c_08seb6095ofjtfr5fjb5tabgl4%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=Asia%2FTokyo

However, there is also a “push” option. All the OpenChain mailing lists will be included in calendar invites so - to start the year - you can choose that path to stay connected with everything we do.

Our bi-weekly global calls start on the 18th of January. Our bi-weekly webinars start on the 25th of January. I look forward to seeing you there.

Regards

Shane

OpenChain in 2022

 

The OpenChain Project and the OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020 international standard had an exceptional 2021. From conformance announcements to new members, it was clear that the market was ready to gather around a shared solution for effective, efficient use of open source in supply chains.

The question is “what next?”

The answer is “a lot.”

We have three new governing board members to announce, new certifiers, new partners, new conformant organizations and – perhaps most important for the long-term – deeper engagement on the policy level across multiple countries.

As a member of our community you can expect to continue receiving support from global and national work groups, ever improving material to help with the adoption and use of OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020, and to be kept up-to-date on everything important in the compliance sphere via our webinars.

From a strategic perspective we are executing on the vision shared at the beginning of 2021: to scale engagement from thousands to tens of thousands of companies. With recent developments regarding open source, security and supply chain management the necessity of this is ever more clear.

There are three things to watch for in Q1 2022:
• The new board member announcements and their implications for geographies and sectors,
• Updated materials for suppliers to make OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020 adoption even easier,
• Announcements regarding how we will work even more closely with others in the compliance and security domain.

Thank you for all your support in 2021. I look forward to collaborating with you to make 2022 another milestone in our field.

大内さん、

 

  お久しぶりです。 以前、富士通でお世話になった伊達です。FQAに対する私の認識です。

 

1.日本の法律に基づいていない。

 

-      日本の法律、裁判ではOSSのライセンス、GPLライセンスなどがライセンスなのか、アグリーメントなのかも判断できてない。当然、GPLのデリバティブの範囲も明確になっていない。

-      共同著作権保持者の規定も米国、ヨーロッパと異なる。Patrick McHardygpl-violations.orgのケースは日本では主張できない。

-      ソフト特許の範囲も日本ではあまり明確でない。私の知る限り、米国でもまだ、不明確な点があり、ヨーロッパではソフト特許は認められていない、です。

 

2.結論は、「FQAは、オープンソース協会のメンバーの中で、共通認識として作成された指針」、です。全体を見るとむしろ米国の法律を意識しているのかと感じました。

 

  くだらない、コメントで恐縮です。

 

以上、伊達です。

Thank you for very good advice.
Updated the FAQ cover page with the following note.

◆This FAQ is based on Japanese law. Laws vary from country to country, and 
  measures for each case may vary from company to company. Consult your
  company or organization's intellectual property counsel for specific issues.

Please let me know if there is any shortage.

I agree that there is much good information in the document. The responses are well thought out and may be directly implementable after review with Legal.

However, I do see that there may also be some inconsistencies in interpretation both at a country and individual company level.

Would you consider perhaps overall disclaimer for the FAQ responses that directs the reader to discuss application of the specific issue and answer with the Company or Organization’s Intellectual Property Legal Counsel? That Legal Counsel would be responsible to determine the precise interpretation under the Country and Company laws or policies.

Thank you for very good advice.
Updated the FAQ cover page with the following note.

◆This FAQ is based on Japanese law. Laws vary from country to country, and 
  measures for each case may vary from company to company. Consult your
  company or organization's intellectual property counsel for specific issues.

Please let me know if there is any shortage.

Best Regards

I agree that there is much good information in the document. The responses are well thought out and may be directly implementable after review with Legal.

However, I do see that there may also be some inconsistencies in interpretation both at a country and individual company level.

Would you consider perhaps overall disclaimer for the FAQ responses that directs the reader to discuss application of the specific issue and answer with the Company or Organization’s Intellectual Property Legal Counsel? That Legal Counsel would be responsible to determine the precise interpretation under the Country and Company laws or policies.
