Interested in Open Innovation? Start here.

“Open Innovation is everywhere. However, the precise scope of Open Innovation, its impact on daily life, and the policy measures needed to sustain it are still a matter of intense discussion and debate. ‘Research On Open Innovation’ compiles full length research papers by respected experts in the field. Together they help explain what an open innovation-based ecosystem could look like and how it could operate. The intent is to help you consider what aspects of Open Innovation could accelerate your own work in whatever field you reside. The underlying message is that there is a great deal of value in engaging with a community committed to openness.”

Lawyer pals and I made another book. Spread the word!

"As legal systems differ throughout the world there are significant differences in how Free and Open Source Software licenses are treated in different countries, and it can be difficult to obtain reliable information on national interpretations. The International Free and Open Source Software Law Book engages with this by providing a clear yet thorough analysis of Free and Open Source legal matters written and maintained by local experts. The publication is targeted towards lawyers, jurists and academics, and positioned as an international bench mark reference work. It provides an introduction to software protection, a general analysis of FOSS under local legislation and an overview of local FOSS cases (if any) for each country covered. The 2nd edition of the book features both new and updated chapters to ensure professionals remain abreast of the latest developments and market growth of Open Source."

Big news! A great holiday season development for us all.
As open source has grown, so have the threats against it, particularly using patents. That's why we're expanding our participation in Open Invention Network. OIN protects the open-source community through a patent cross-license for Linux and related open-source technologies. Read more:

Space science goes everywhere. I wonder when little bits from the Mars Rover will start to pop up on Earth?
