Earlier today I came across a tweet saying that today is World IP Day. Over the last year we've been looking at the role of OpenNTF, looking at what Apache and Eclipse offer and considering how the changes in personal websites and cloud source control repositories like GitHub and BitBucket offer. These days there are a host of ways open source projects can be made available to the public. But one of the key differentiators we identified that OpenNTF provides is IP clearance of projects. This means projects cleared for inclusion in the Apache catalog have been vetted to ensure there are no intellectual property right infringements and that all contributors are given due credit. Thanks to Peter Tanner for his tireless work over the years as our IP Manager!
