Open source license compliance is impossible without a comprehensive understanding of enterprise open source usage. However, many organizations lack a complete picture of which open source packages are in use or how they're used due to the fact that open source can be freely downloaded by employees, thereby bypassing normal procurement processes and controls. In addition, many open source packages come with bundled packages or dependencies that have different licenses and obligations, so even open source packages that have been approved for enterprise use may come with other hidden packages and licenses. OpenLogic helps enterprises gain visibility of open source usage.

Like commercial software, open source software comes with its own unique licenses. Open source license obligations are triggered when certain conditions are met – often when the open source code is "distributed" as part of a software or hardware product. Failure to comply with open source license obligations can result in legal action, unnecessary expense, and negative publicity.
OpenLogic helps enterprises understand the license obligations that come with the open source software they use so that legal and compliance staff can make informed decisions about open source deployments and distribution.

Once you've identified the open source packages – and corresponding license obligations – used in the enterprise, you will likely need to take steps to ensure compliance with all open source licenses. These steps may include declaring all open source software used in products, including licensing and copyright information, as well as providing online and physical open source fulfillment options. OpenLogic helps enterprises comply with open source licenses and ensure ongoing compliance.
