Open Source Legal Issues Checklist

This checklist [from PLI] provides an overview of procedures and issues that in-house counsel might want to consider with respect to use of open source code. The list serves as well as general summary of the legal issues faced by any enterprise regarding the use of open source software, either internally or as part of a commercial product. The list is not meant to be exhaustive and, in the event your company is considering use of open source code, independent consultation with counsel, particularly those who are specialists in this area, is highly recommended.
