Open Source

Open source software assets have become a crucial, efficient, and often very lucrative element within the international software development market, while simultaneously raising many sensitive issues related to intellectual property ownership, liability issues, copyright disputes, and other complex matters.

Shibolet’s Open Source Practice possesses in-depth knowledge covering the full spectrum of open source issues, guiding clients ranging from startups to international technology companies on writing and implementing tailor-made open source usage policies, work procedures, legal analyses, licensing and compliance documentation, and open-source model-based projects.

Our attorneys provide this guidance on an ongoing basis, and also frequently counsel clients in connection with specific investments and M&As, conducting due diligence procedures on open source issues and resolving myriad questions related to licensing and compatibility.
