SOUTHFIELD, Mich., – Brooks Kushman Associate Marco Gatti will discuss open source software (OSS) license compliance in the automotive industry at the 2014 Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo on Sept. 16 at 1 p.m. in Novi, Michigan. Gatti`s presentation will provide insights on types of OSS licensing and best practices for staying updated on policies and strategies to maintain compliance.

“It is important to understand exactly which OSS will be included in any product you sell or distribute,” said Gatti. “While the use of OSS provides extensive benefits, it can also become complicated very quickly. Brooks Kushman analyzes embedded modules for open source code, and counsels its clients on how to effectively comply with the licensing terms that apply to that code.”

Gatti`s practice at Brooks Kushman focuses on domestic and foreign patent prosecution and litigation support in electrical, mechanical and software matters. He counsels clients of all sizes on the development of their patent portfolio in the automotive, consumer electronics and manufacturing industries.

The 2014 Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo will be held from Sept. 16 to 18 at the Suburban Collection Showcase in Novi. It is the premier showcase for electric and hybrid vehicle technology and innovation, highlighting powertrain advances across a wide range of passenger, commercial and industrial vehicles.
