Open Source

When it comes to protecting software, both technical and legal understanding is vital.

Understanding Your Needs

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

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
