ACC Open Source Software Shared Wisdom Session
In this session, experts from the sponsoring firms of the IT, Privacy & eCommerce Committee and the Intellectual Property, Field Fisher Waterhouse and Kilpatrick, Townsend & Stockton, will discuss the legal risks that attach to the use of open source software and the practical, contractual and policy based solutions that businesses can take to mitigate and avoid those risks.
The session will run in a "town hall" style format to invite interactive debate and knowledge sharing between attendees and session leaders, with attendees encouraged to share their practical experiences of working with open source and the solutions they have turned to in practice
