Open Source

Open Resource for Open Source

Type: Clinical Project, Project
Year: 2002

The Clinic has been gathering information from the open source community regarding its needs. Based on what open source developers have told us they need and the success of the Chilling Effects model, clinic students are developing a resource web site for open source developers that will provide detailed information about current open source licenses, to be launched in Fall 2003. In the future, we hope to expand the site to include additional information on, for example, work-made-for-hire, patent issues, and international harmonization.
