An open source is a software whose source code is open and accessible to all. This allows anyone who wishes to do so to take part in the software development and contribute to its improvement. Nowadays, many technology companies use this kind of business model to encourages free collaboration. However, it can also present challenges and risks to the company, especially with regards to the company’s IP assets. Our IP experts have the most advanced technical and legal understanding to ensure our clients’ assets are properly protected while engaging in open source.
We build our clients a tailored strategy when handling their open source issues, and all other related computer law matters, including drafting patents for software based inventions; handling copyright matters in software; carrying out due diligence processes in transactions involving open source and other types of software; handling enforcement of IP rights in software, and drafting and negotiating various types of licenses, agreements and contracts, including, inter alia, user licenses, software development contracts, EULA and SaaS agreements, and many more.
