Title:  How to Keep Developers Happy and Lawyers Calm

Abstract

The initial step in helping make sure teams are in compliance with open source licenses is education. Attendees can expect to learn how to educate developers and managers on the differences between copyleft and permissive licenses, the inherent risks associated with non-compliance, and see real examples of how licensing risks are introduced into organizations and their consequences. The goal is to provide concrete steps towards development teams adopting a vested interest in paying attention to what open source they download and how it's used.
