open source and copyright law
  • Software is protected by copyright law in the U.S. and many other countries.
  • Anyone that wrote the software, owns the copyright and can say how it is used. [NOT saying how it can be used does NOT remove your responsibility as the owner, even if you don't care.]
  • People sometimes give up their copyright ownership to the software they write in their employment agreements.
