This handbook will allow you to:

Avoid common flaws in open source license agreements.
Identify hidden open source components in commercial software you buy or license.
Adopt policies and guidelines to better control open source applications within your enterprise systems.
Make sure any viruses, defects or security threats in the open source software are identified and prevented from damaging your business.
Protect your proprietary code when integrating it with open source software.
