In this presentation, we will give a brief but informative overview of the importance of a robust and comprehensive intellectual property policy to assist Eclipse Foundation committers to develop and implement their content with the confidence that their submissions are compliant with licensing and copyright regulations.
In the last year, we have made significant changes to the way in which we review code submissions for license and copyright compliance, and we will highlight the ways in which we have streamlined our processes in order to better serve our community of Eclipse committers. As well, we will update the community on upcoming changes to the IP policy that will enhance the committer experience to make the license compliance process more user-friendly and accessible.
In addition to our in-house policy upgrades to our IP processes, we'll touch on ongoing developments that will further enhance the profile of the Eclipse Foundation in the field of intellectual property, including the development, implementation, and application of the OSS Review Toolkit (ORT) to our IP reviews, our recent adoption of the OpenChain Project's license compliance standards, and our ongoing work with the GitBOM community to adopt standards for the inclusion of Software Bills of Materials in future Eclipse projects.
In summary, we will demonstrate why our ever-evolving intellectual property policies and processes are just some of the many reasons why the Eclipse Foundation is recognized worldwide as a leader in the community for open source collaboration and innovation.
