David Nuescheler on Commercial Open Source Software

,----[ Quote ]

| possible.

| Some of you may have read our recent press release about the new MuleSoft 
| Tcat Server, now in public beta. In a nutshell, the MuleSoft Tcat Server 
| is a new web application server that helps system administrators ditch 
| their bloated, legacy infrastructure in favor of the lighter weight Apache 
| Tomcat, without losing robust enterprise functionality and support. This 
| new offering, solves a huge pain-point for our customers and user 
| community.


Open Source Contract Considerations

,----[ Quote ]
| At Crowd Favorite we work primarily with WordPress, but also with many 
| other Open Source projects. We are often working with larger companies 
| that have standard Master Services Agreements (MSAs) or Professional 
| Services Agreements (PSAs). These agreement templates are designed so that 
| these companies have a known legal foundation to work from, and include a 
| variety of requirements and terms that apply to the consultants working 
| for them and governing the Deliverables created by those consultants. 
| These agreements often have standard language in them that have some 
| interesting side-effects when you are working with Open Source.
