Jilayne Lovejoy, OpenLogic’s Corporate Counsel, and Eric Weidner, OpenLogic’s Co-Founder and Senior Development Manager, recently sat down for an informative discussion on practical tips for open source license compliance.
Jilyane started by asking why you should comply with open source licenses. First, she said, you comply with every other license or contract you enter into – open source licenses are no different. Second, you could get sued if you’re not observing license requirements. Bottom line: it’s the right thing to do.
