Source Code Open Source Licensing
Source code open source licensing and code cases involve highly material and highly valuable ownership or right to use issues that are extremely difficult and complex to sort through. They involve in depth understanding and analysis of the underling source code. Additionally, in certain instances, open source can come into play in software litigation as a defense against claims of patent infringement (as prior art) or misappropriation or theft when the portions of the code in question are present in the massive open source libraries and repositories. Eureka has handled these types of situations as a source code expert witness and is well positioned to offer similar services to those who are experiencing open source related issues.
