On the path to innovation, development teams fear nothing but try to avoid three things: re-work, lawyers, and, missing deadlines. In this session we will discuss what to do when software is not license-compliant, how to prevent lawyers from getting involved, disrupting schedules, and potential architectural or code changes.


The goal is to provide concrete steps toward development teams adopting a vested interest in paying attention to what open source they download and how it's used.
