Adopting a Community-Oriented Approach to Open Source License Compliance

Monday, November 27, 2017

Today Google joins Red Hat, Facebook, and IBM alongside the Linux Kernel Community in increasing the predictability of open source license compliance and enforcement.

We are taking an approach to compliance enforcement that is consistent with the Principles of Community-Oriented GPL Enforcement. We hope that this will encourage greater collaboration on open source projects, and foster discussion on how we can all continue to work closely together.

You can learn more about today’s announcement in Red Hat’s press release and in our GPL Enforcement Statement.
