Dave Kappos Authors Chapter on the Intersection of Standards and Open Source Software for The Cambridge Handbook of Technical Standardization Law

Cravath partner David J. Kappos authored a chapter entitled “OSS and SDO: Symbiotic Functions in the Innovation Equation” for the second volume of The Cambridge Handbook of Technical Standardization Law, which focuses on “Further Intersections of Public and Private Law.”

Dave’s chapter discusses how industry standards development organizations (“SDOs”) and the open source software (“OSS”) community have contributed to technological achievements in recent decades, and examines how they coexist and complement each other. The chapter discusses topics including how innovation has been spurred by the creation and adoption of industry standards, as well as the compatibility of open source software with fair, reasonable and non‑discriminatory licensing.
