SPDX Forum: Managing Open Source Licenses with Suppliers and Customers

April 6, 2012

San Jose, CA

The SPDX Forum is a one-day forum that will help companies learn how to streamline their open source license compliance processes.  The forum will bring together procurement, supply chain, legal and technical staff at companies that use open source technologies in their products to discuss challenges and best practices for complying with open source licenses across the software supply chain.  

We will also discuss how the SPDX(TM) (Software Package Data Exchange) standard, developed by a workgroup of the Linux Foundation, can help companies to improve and streamline compliance efforts.

Topics covered will include:

  • State of open source compliance
  • Discussion groups on challenges and best practices for open source compliance
  • How SPDX can help
