Another Wrinkle in Due Diligisms



The Committee's first Program of the 2006 Spring Meeting discussed Another Technology Wrinkle in M&A. Of course, the cyberspace law angle is the ongoing struggles that business lawyers have with analyzing free and open source software issues -- particularly when looking at a target company which may or may not have software that may or may not be at risk of 'infecting' or being put in a non-proprietary mode of ownership.

Of course, a great deal of the problem is just teaching folks how to recognize the problem and the legal risks -- our illustrious panelists took the experienced and the inexperienced down that road. For the rest of the story, be sure to connect to the materials posted by the Section for its members (as well as Vince Polley's observations posted here).
