Open Source License Compliance and Ory Open Source
Our recent audit showed that Ory’s open source code base is “clean” i.e. poses no intellectual property risks to its users (within the limits of what our tools can identify). Still, users, and in particular vendors, need to understand the license obligations open source code puts on them. In this talk, I will review Ory from a license compliance perspective and how users/vendors should think about it.
