Oracle's claims against Google on the use of certain Java programming interfaces in the Android operating system pose unique issues relative to the use of open source software and open source compliance programs. In this Webinar, our panel will address the following issues:

  • The copyright issues in the Google v Oracle case on appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court, and the legal implications of the Court's decision (if issued prior to the Webinar)
  • The implications of copyright protection for application programing interfaces ("APIs") for use of free and open source software and compliance with open source licenses
  • The importance of conducting regular source code audits to ensure continuous compliance with open source license obligations
  • Best practices for designing and implementing appropriate open source compliance policies and processes to address copyright risks associated with the use of APIs and open source software
