Best Practices for Managing Software Intellectual Property in an Open Source World

05Nov08

Recently, I came across a white paper from BlackDuck Software. It has the same name with the title of this post. So here are the 7 best practices mentioned in the white paper :

  • Re-use existing components wherever appropriate
  • Track and control changes to internal components
  • Control re-use of sensitive or external components
  • Verify every build and release
  • Review compliance at project phase transitions
  • Control component contribution and distribution
  • Assess software components before acquisition

To read the complete white paper click here. All trademarks are the property of their respective holders.
