LCA recently revised its open source use policy to make it faster and easier for Microsoft to operate in a mixed source world, and do so intelligently. To help you understand how the policy works in practice and why it works the way it does, please join visiting open source expert Cliff Allen to hear about the Open Source Policy and answer your questions about pain points and reasoning behind the policy. Before Cliff joined the Microsoft Open Source Legal Team, he was at Sun Microsystems for ten years, where he received Sun’s Open Source Expert Award and was a thought leader on open source legal issues. At Sun, he created the legal infrastructure for, OpenOffice, NetBeans, GlassFish and OpenSPARC. He advised senior management on open source license models, community structure and use polices. His extensive pro-open source background and expertise should help you frame and understand Microsoft’s approach to open source which enables the use of open source while protecting Microsoft’s IP.

This review should be attended by all researchers, and especially those leading research projects, to help you spot risks and resolve potential open source issues with LCA in advance.
