There are many Open Source licenses out there, with as many different models of permissiveness or requirements; most notably, the GNU licenses, alongside the MIT, BSD and Apache licenses as the most common. This poses a question for companies as to what can be used in what contexts, and the many differences lead some companies to shun Open Source licenses altogether.
In this session, we will cover a brief overview of the notable features of the most popular licenses in the form of a talk; and then lead into an open discussion with everybody as to the preferences, concerns and implications of adopting the various licenses.
