OpenChain Project to Feature at SFLC Fall Conference

NEW YORK, United States, November 3, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured in a talk entitled ‘Update on OpenChain: Now we really begin’ by Shane Coughlan, Open Chain Project Director, and David Marr, Vice President, Legal at Qualcomm, at the Software Freedom Law Center Fall Conference in New York on the 3rd of November.

“The OpenChain Project has grown its membership by over 50% in the last six months,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “Our community of conformance has increased from 1 to 15 entities and our key material has been translated into eight languages. We are delighted to share this news and to explain what lies ahead at a key legal event for open source.”

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.

The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.

The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
