With the use of Linux and other open source software exploding in recent years, The Linux Foundation has developed a set of open source tools, training curricula and a new self-administered assessment checklist that will allow companies to ensure compliance in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
Open Compliance Directory and Rapid Alert System
Many times, open source developers need to contact companies to discuss compliance issues but cannot find the appropriate party. The Linux Foundation has created a directory of compliance officers at companies using Linux and Open Source software in their commercial products so communication can be eased, information related to open source licenses can be easily disseminated and actions can be coordinated.
The Linux Foundation can also use this list for rapid alerts of changing legal landscapes and to coordinate actions in the community and industry.
