OpenChain Webinar #3: Contribution Policies + OpenChain in M&A – Coming May 4th

 

The OpenChain Project has launched a series of bi-weekly free webinars that provide access to people and knowledge that we would otherwise obtain at events. We hold our third meeting on Monday the 4h of May at 9am Pacific with two guest speakers.

Tobie Langel will speak about ‘Open Source Contribution Policies That Don’t Suck.’ In his own words: Open source contribution policies are long, boring, overlooked documents, that generally suck. They’re designed to protect the company at all costs. But in the process, end up hurting engineering productivity, and morale. Sometimes they even unknowingly put corporate IP at risk. But that’s not inevitable. It’s possible to write open source contribution policies that make engineers lives easier, boost morale and productivity, reduce attrition, and attract new talent. And it’s possible to do so while reducing the company’s IP risk, not increasing it.

Leon Schwartz and Tony Decicco from GTC Law will provide an overview of open source-related topics in the context of mergers, acquisitions, financings, investments, IPOs, divestitures, loans, customer license agreements, rep and warranty insurance and other transactions. This will span:
• Types of open source risk
• open source due diligence as part of transactions
• open source-related terms in agreements
• The strategic use of open source in transactions

Everyone is invited to join this free webinar via zoom. It will also be recorded and made available later on our website.

OpenChain Webinar #2 – China Update + Facebook Case Study – Full Recording

 

The OpenChain Project has launched a series of bi-weekly free webinars that provide access to people and knowledge that we would otherwise obtain at events. You can join us every month on the First Monday (9am Pacific) and Third Monday (5pm Pacific).

Who Presented in Webinar #2?
https://www.openchainproject.org/featured/2020/04/22/openchain-webinar-2-china-update-facebook-case-study-full-recording

Maggie Wang spoke about OpenChain in China. Maggie’s background ranges from working as an in-house at Huawei to acting as the China representative for Ladas and Parry. Her unique experience in-house and as outside counsel positions her perfectly to help contextualize where we are with regards compliance, standardization and business reality in one of our most important markets.

Michael Cheng spoke about OpenChain at Facebook, a topic that ranges from adoption activity and broader leadership in the compliance space by the company. His perspective will provide added value given the simultaneous decision by Facebook, Google and Uber to join OpenChain as Platinum Members in late 2018, and plenty of runway for our audience to ask questions about real-life lessons learned.

OpenChain and Procurement Departments

 

Hi all!

I have started a blue-sky document to contextualize and explain OpenChain for procurement departments, something that will become increasingly possible throughout this year, especially after we become a formal ISO standard. Can you put some eyes on and provide suggestions for improvement?
