OSADL Service Offers

License Compliance Audit (LCA)

OSADL is offering a service to help manufacturers comply with license obligations of products that contain Open Source software. The logo is registered as trademark and will be established as a cachet. Suppliers of board support packages and other Open Source software providers may then print the logo on their products and use it as a hallmark of certified license compliance.



In contrast to the many other services OSADL is providing to its members based on the annual flat-rate service fee, this audit requires too much time and work to be offered free of charge. However, every member is entitled to undergo as many highly subsidized audits per year as OSADL shares have been purchased:
