OpenChain Project to be featured at the World Intellectual Property Forum

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, January 9, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured at the World Intellectual Property Forum on the 18th January in Dubai. Andrew Katz will explain how and why OpenChain addresses challenges regarding compliance in the supply chain at 11:30am.

“Andrew from Moorcrofts is one of our most active partners,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “Our forthcoming talk at the World Intellectual Property Forum marks a key inflection in our outreach. In 2018 we will scale OpenChain beyond its starting market segment and strive to ensure stakeholders from all sectors touched by open source understand our value. I am looking forward to collaborating with Andrew and others in accomplishing this goal.”

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.
