Abstract

Commercial use of open source software is on the rise as
more companies realize the benefits of using FLOSS
components in their products. At the same time, the
ungoverned use of such components can result in legal,
financial, intellectual property, and other risks. To mitigate
these risks, companies must govern their use of open source
through appropriate processes. This paper presents an initial
theory of industry best practices on getting started with
open source governance and compliance, focusing on
private companies. Through a qualitative survey, we
conducted and analyzed 15 expert interviews in companies
with advanced capabilities in open source governance. We
also studied practitioner reports on existing practices for
introducing FLOSS governance processes. We cast our
resulting initial theory in the actionable format of best
practice patterns that, when combined, form a practical
handbook of getting started with FLOSS governance in
private companies.
