Third podcast interview: Lawrence Rosen

The third Dan Bricklin's Software Licensing Podcast is now available. It is an interview with lawyer Lawrence Rosen of the law firm RosenLaw & Einschlag.

Larry has served as the general counsel and secretary of the Open Source Initiative, authored the book "Open Source Licensing: Software Freedom and Intellectual Property Law", and advises Black Duck Software and SpikeSource, Inc. We discussed the "based upon" language in the GPL and derivative works for about 15 minutes, then indemnification, due diligence in mergers and acquisitions (Open Source and proprietary), audits, attorney/client privilege, the effects of Open Source and Open Standards on policies about patents, and more.
