    Panel – Unlocking Opportunity & Managing Risk in Open Source Contribution December 2021

    To realize the full benefit of open source software, financial institutions need to move beyond managing their use of open source and enable their developers to contribute back to the projects they depend on. But contribution comes with a new set of challenges and questions: How do you evaluate contributions for the presence of potentially valuable IP? What kinds of controls and reviews are necessary to prevent disclosure of private and sensitive data? What open source license obligations do contributions trigger? In this panel discussion, three experienced open source IP attorneys answer these and other common questions that large companies have about contributing to open source projects.

    Open Source Contribution Policies that Don’t Suck – Tobie Langel March 2020

    Open source contribution policies are long, boring, overlooked documents, that generally suck. They're designed to protect the company at all costs. But in the process, end up hurting engineering productivity, and morale. Sometimes they even unknowingly put corporate IP at risk. But that's not inevitable. It's possible to write open source contribution policies that make engineers lives easier, boost morale and productivity, reduce attrition, and attract new talent. And it's possible to do so while reducing the company's IP risk, not increasing it. In this talk, we will look at the general structure of open source contribution policies, examples in the wild, and tactics to make them suck less. We'll also look at how to turn these policies into self-service software, preventing the tedious email back and forth between engineering and legal, and making open source contribution a breeze.
