“Today a coalition of major companies—led by Red Hat and including Google, IBM and Facebook—who create, modify and distribute FOSS under copyleft licenses have committed to the use of GPLv3’s approach to license termination for all their works published under the terms of GPLv2 and LGPLv2.1. Following last month’s statement to similar effect by the developers of the Linux kernel, the world’s most widely-used GPLv2 program, today’s announcement establishes a broad consensus in favor of the “notice and cure period” approach to first-time infringement issues that Richard Stallman and I adopted in GPLv3 more than a decade ago. This adoption of GPLv3’s approach for GPLv2 programs is an enormously important step in securing the long-term viability of copyleft licensing.”

Two of our talks entitled 'Update on OpenChain: now we really begin' (SFLC Fall Conference) and 'OpenChain: Giving everyone access to open source best practices' (Open Compliance Summit) are now available on SlideShare.

“The OpenChain Project has enjoyed a terrific series of talks by project management and volunteers during the end of year period,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “In addition to the talks highlighted by our slides today we have been featured in talks by representatives from member companies on more than five occasions during the last month. This substantial level of engagement is indicative of the level of engagement and support our project now enjoys and lays the groundwork for great things in 2018.”
