Introduction

IP Management

Intellectual Property management is a process used to handle IP issues.

Licenses

Project must take care of their dependencies, in order to remain license compatible.
Each dependency of a project has its own license, project members have to make sure that they use the dependencies (linking, distribution, ...) within the bounds of the license.

For example, a LGPL3 project cannot depends on a GPL3 library (GPL3 is viral and requires 'client' to be GPL too).
Another example: a LGPL project has the right to depends on an ASL2 library.
