What It’s All About
Technology transfer offices are seeing more and more software disclosures. Software developed in research organizations often includes components downloaded from the Internet that include their own license terms and obligations. Meanwhile, researchers often want to release their software under an open source license while pursuing their commercialization interests. 

How does a licensing professional navigate the multitude of available open source licenses to select the appropriate license? What are the implications of releasing software with an MIT license versus Apache? Will the release of software under an open source license impact its patent filing? Is it possible to build a successful start-up using software released under an open source license? These are just some of the questions we’ll tackle.
