Relicensing: When Your Open Source Tool Turns to the Dark Side

Imagine waking up one morning to find out that your beloved open source database, which lies at the heart of your system, is being relicensed: it's no longer Apache 2.0 but another OSS license or even a non-OSS license.

What does that mean? Can you still use it as before? Could the new license be infectious and require you to open source your own business logic?

This doom’s day scenario isn’t hypothetical. In fact we faced that twice over the past year alone. On this talk I will share his lessons learned with practical tips. If you’re using OSS, or if you’re in the process of evaluating a new OSS, you won't want to miss this talk.
