Description

Technology developers today straddle the worlds of software patents and open source software–two worlds that are at philosophical and practical odds. It’s easy for patent portfolio management and open source development to be siloed in your company. Many open source licenses grant royalty–free patent licenses that concern patent portfolio managers, and prosecution of software patents concerns software developers. How can you walk the line between pleasing your investors and your development team? This talk will help you understand how these areas interact, including how open source licenses can be used as strategic and tactical weapons in patent litigation.
