Open Source Inside?

I had the pleasure of meeting Palamida founder Ray Waldin recently. Palamida is addressing a growing problem for ISV's: "what sort of open source might we be using, and are we adhering to the licenses?"

With a smorgasbord of ready-to-integrate code and a the proliferation of licensing terms, it's getting harder to ensure a complex, long-lived software product doesn't mistakenly run afoul of any licenses. Both Palamida and their competitor Black Duck Software are bringing a welcome service to market -- best of luck Ray!
