"Maintaining open source license compliance in an enterprise
development and production environment can sometimes be a complex
task. Applications can pull from multiple open source projects,
each with their own licensing requirements and obligations.
"What we've learned over the last several years is that open
source compliance is not a one person game," Kim Weins, senior vice
president of OpenLogic told InternetNews.com. "Compliance
involves a whole set of people throughout the enterprise that are
involved in understanding what open source they are using and
ensuring they are meeting the open source license obligations."
