Abstract: The concept of creating open source software is not just brilliant – it is a mind changer, basis for cooperative collaboration, accelerator for innovation, and a good mindset for a better future. Anyway, the world of open source has structures, governance and is far away from being the a virtual wild west. This talk provides basics about legal aspects of open source software, i.e. its upsides, downsides and offers concepts to use open source software in a compliant way.
