With a growing amount of open source projects going commando with no license declared, many organizations are feeling exposed when it comes to the use of these projects for business-critical software development. Some community members are using the term “Post-Open-Source-Software (POSS) Generation” to describe new attitudes toward the freedom of use for FOSS and the need (or lack thereof) for specific declared licensing.   Some are suggesting that licensing isn’t needed.

Then we’ll explore today’s license usage trends, explain what’s behind them, and discuss the implications of these trends on open source adoption.
