86% of developers say open source license policies weigh heavily in package choices.

License choice is especially critical for organizations in highly regulated industries such as financial services or health care that want the benefits of using open source while minimizing legal and security risks.

Don't fret, though. Join us on Wednesday, August 26 at 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST when Tidelift's resident open source license guru Luis Villa will share the basics of how open source licenses work, major pitfalls organizations might fall into, and answers to your most pressing questions.

This webinar is for you if:

  • You've ever wasted time pondering the permissiveness of an open source license
  • You've googled any of the following: "copyleft licenses," "open source license compliance," "how to choose an open source license," "what is the difference between MIT or GPL or Mozilla license?"
  • Your organization has ever faced legal consequences because you're using a package with a non-compliant license
  • You need help figuring out which licenses your organization should allow
  • You use open source software at all—you really should understand the basics of the licensing side of things

Bonus: Fill out the form above and include any open source licensing questions you've ever wondered about, and Luis will try to weave those answers into the webinar.
