The Valley Current ®: Larry Rosen, Esq. on the Growth of Open Source Licensing Worldwide THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

    • Entrepreneurship

The open source system was meant to simplify things, not complicate them. Open source is getting more complex the more it grows, a fact which Attorney Larry  Rosen recognizes as a pioneer in the space. How sticky can open source law get? Jack Russo asks if derivative works inspired by an existing software must be published under the same license it was inspired by, or if the creator(s) are free to establish their own, separate license. As part of the general counsel for open source initiative, Larry handles questions like this and far more.
