OpenChain Project featured at EOLE

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, December 3, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be highlighted at the forthcoming EOLE event in Paris. Malcolm Bain from ID Law Partners will join a panel entitled ‘Building commons: standards, patent pools, etc.‘ between 2 and 4pm on the 5th of December to explain our project and its place in the wider community.

“I am delighted that the OpenChain Project will be showcased at this exceptional event,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “Malcolm’s contribution to the project is one of the pillars of our growing maturity in Europe. His engagement with the panel on patents and standards alongside figures such as Keith Bergelt of OIN is timely and much appreciated by myself and our community at large.”

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.
