The awareness how to deal with Open Source licenses and what steps a company should take to be license compliant took some time to evolve. In close collaboration with specialized attorneys OSADL offers the corresponding know-how and best practices from every day's routine. Furthermore, OSADL has developed a formal certification procedure, the so-called OSADL License Compliance Audit (LCA). This audit helps companies that distribute Linux in a compliant way and mark their products accordingly. In case gaps are detected during the audit, OSADL helps twice:
- OSADL makes specific proposals to close these gaps and
- OSADL defines clear concepts how to optimize the affected processes.
If the audit is successful, the client is issued a certificate along with the report, and the audited product can be marked with the LCA hallmark.
