Old/SPDX Forum: Managing Open Source Software 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
The SPDX Forum is hosted by the SPDX Workgroup of the Linux Foundation. The SPDX Workgroup is an industry group that is developing a standard that enables companies to share information about open source licenses with suppliers and customers. The SPDX Workgroup includes members from over 20 companies, including Alcatel-Lucent, Antelink, Black Duck Software, Canonical, Cisco, HP, Micro Focus, Motorola Mobility, nexB Inc, OpenLogic, Palamida, Protecode, Source Auditor, Texas Instruments and Wind River.
