Legal Reference Resource

The OSI's Legal Reference Resource is available to those searching for legal advice from qualified attorneys related to open source licensing and related legal issues. The Legal Reference Resource is not legal advice, nor is it a list of recommended attorneys. Rather, the  Legal Reference Resource is a set of questions that those seeking legal advice can ask attorneys to assess their experience within the open source community, with open source projects and around issues related to open source (licensing, tax status, patents, etc.)
