osi-logoThe Open Source Initiative (OSI) will host a small open source license clinic as part of its non-profit educational mission, in collaboration with federal agency participants and the Washington D.C. technology community  The clinic is designed as a cross-industry, cross-community workshop for legal, contract, acquisition and program professionals who wish to deepen their understanding of open source software licenses, and raise their proficiency to better serve their organizations objectives as well as identify problems which may be unique to government.

Invited Expert Presenters and Panelist include:

  • Ms. Vicki Allums, General Counsel, Defense Information Systems Agency, Department of Defense

  • Mr. Mike Milinkovich, OSI board director and Executive Director, Eclipse Foundation

  • Mr. David Wheeler, Analyst, Institute for Defense Analyses

What we’ll be talking about:

  • What are the most popular open source licenses, and how are they commonly used?
  • What are the common barriers – real or perceived – in government adoption of open source with regard to the licenses under which the software is distributed? What are the successful approaches to overcoming these? Where are the reference models in this regard?
  • What are the challenges for industry or open source community in working with federal agencies? Who has been successful in overcoming these?
  • How are government agencies distributing their own code under open source licenses? Include external shareholders in the process?
  • What is the rational behind license non-proliferation? Does government need special license? What are the case studies or history in this area?
