The continuing rise of open source software has been an incredible boon for entrepreneurs, startups, emerging companies, and even established businesses across a number of industries. But while open source software can be an invaluable resource for businesses, especially those in the tech world with limited capital, it also presents an array of legal risks and challenges that may not be apparent until years later, and thus it is critical to work with experienced attorneys who can counsel your business on challenges and create transactional solutions that protect your interests. The Open Source Software practice group of ZentLaw has extensive experience in counseling clients in the area of open source software licensing and compliance.
As a subgroup of our Technology Transactions and IP Law & Licensing Practices, our Open Source Software attorneys have experience in crafting solutions for reducing the legal barriers to using open source software, thus allowing our clients to successfully leverage open source software in their businesses. Our Open Source Software Practice clients range from technology companies seeking to integrate open source software into traditionally proprietary products and services, to companies in a variety of other industries looking to leverage open source software in their environments. Because ZentLaw provides legal counsel and support via flexible pricing and scheduling, our services are well-suited for emerging businesses seeking knowledgeable and experienced counsel on a reasonable budget.
Our forms have been featured by some of the leading legal industry organizations such as the General Counsel Roundtable and American Corporate Counsel Association.
