License Information Management - Case Study (Steve Winslow and Kate Stewart, The Linux Foundation): For modern open source software projects, license compliance presupposes that a developer or distributor can determine what licenses are present in a codebase. Managing, locating and maintaining license information for a large open source project is often far more complex than simply posting a single LICENSE.txt file. In this tutorial, Steve Winslow and Kate Stewart will present real-world examples to demonstrate techniques and best practices for identifying applicable licenses, handling license compatibility, and communicating license information to a project's contributors and users.
