Open Source in Finance Podcast: Understanding Copyleft - Aaron Williamson

On this episode of the podcast we talk open source readiness, compliance, and how to understand the copyleft license. Copyleft licenses like the GNU GPL come with a higher compliance burden than more permissive licenses, because they require licensees to provide source code to recipients -- sometimes just for the open source component, and sometimes for any derivative work produced by the licensee. These licenses therefore raise the thorniest issues of license compliance.
