Linux Foundation “Open Compliance Program” Backed By Intel, Google and More

Linux Foundation is launching the Open Compliance Program, a comprehensive initiative that includes tools, training, a standard format to report software licensing information, consulting and a self-assessment checklist to help companies comply with open source licenses, increasing adoption of open source and decreasing legal FUD present in the marketplace.

“Backed by big names you recognize — Intel, AMD, Google, Cisco, Nokia, Adobe, Sony, and many more — the Open Compliance Program is an effort to make it easier and cheaper to properly leverage open source software. The program is primarily comprised of self-administered training modules, but there’re also some automated tools being rolled out to help programmatically identify license compliance issues. And new to the program is a standard license information data exchange format, so licensing information can be unambiguously communicated both upstream and downstream.”
