Open Source Software (2021)
Open Source Brochure
We designed the DLR Open Source brochure as a reference book for all employees. An external law firm developed it in cooperation with DLR. The brochure was released in 2013 and distributed as printed copies and download-able PDF documents.
The brochure helps DLR employees to answer the most basic questions related to Open Source Software licenses. Specifically, it describes how to proceed when Open Source
software should be distributed to third-parties. For the distribution of unmodified and modified Open Source Software, the brochure lists all obligations of the most important licenses that are used at DLR. The licenses are grouped into licenses with strong copyleft, weak copyleft, without copyleft, and with special rights. For each license, the brochure has a simple checklist with all required obligations (e.g., how to prepare source code or which information to add to the distribution) as well as text boxes with explanations and additional information.
