My Comments in “A New Wave of IP Risks”

FOSSA and Above the Law recently partnered to write a white paper titled, “A New Wave of IP Risks: How Open Source is Changing IP Risk in the Software Supply Chain.” I was interviewed for this white paper along with other attorneys including Heather Meeker and Mark Radcliffe, and my comments appear throughout the paper, so I hope you take a look!

The paper provides an overview of the legal risks posed by using open source software including those related to copyright infringement, patent infringement, trade secret misappropriation, as well as those related to reputation and partner/customer relationships. It’s a useful primer for anyone new to the area of open source compliance trying to get a handle on the scope of risk involved and the types of risks that should be considered.

If you would like a copy of the white paper without submitting contact info to Above the Law, please email me.
