    In recent years, companies' use of open source software as part of their businesses has risen to unprecedented levels. Although open source software licensing has traditionally focused on copyright protection, open source licenses often implicate patent rights as well, and some or all of those rights can extinguish upon the assertion of patent infringement claims. Companies developing their intellectual property strategies may need to consider measures such as avoiding open source licenses due to patent rights, asserting open source license rights defensively (i.e., patent retaliation), and utilizing defensive patent pools. In advising a client who itself uses open source software or is otherwise transacting with or acquiring a company that uses open source software, practitioners should be increasingly aware of the legal consequences that arise from such use.

    Join our esteemed panel of IP Practitioners as they demonstrate how to:

    • Interpret patent license grants and patent retaliation clauses within an open source software license
    • Recognize the role that open source software plays in a company's patent activities
    • Identify common open source licensing risks and considerations in business transactions
