Open source software (OSS) is an important part of mainstream software development organizations. Active OSS adoption can drive down software development costs, speed time to market and increase software functionality, all without adding to the bottom line.
And yet, even as it has become mainstream, OSS is often misunderstood by legal professionals. As Mark Driver, Gartner Group’s lead analyst for OSS, says: “Open source is ubiquitous, it’s unavoidable….having a policy against open source is impractical and places you at a competitive disadvantage.” The lawyer who dismisses OSS based on uncertainty or doubt is missing a tremendous opportunity to add value to his or her organization.
