Software deployment is moving rapidly from “on premises” to service-based and cloud models–requiring developers to upgrade knowledge of OSS licenses. Most OSS licenses were developed around traditional delivery models; however, these models didn’t anticipate advances in cloud computing, which has resulted in some popular licenses having implications for SaaS. With the shift to SaaS and cloud, this new class of licenses (including the AGPL) has become increasingly important. In this presentation, Kirsten Newcomer will review the application of OSS licenses, particularly AGPL and similar licenses, to these services. Newcomer will also review reasoning behind the proliferation in projects with AGPL-type licenses, the new compliance and license complexities introduced by Docker, and the logistical challenges inherent in managing open source in SaaS applications.
