FOSSology is an industry standard tool for the end-to-end analysis of software components in a single Web server application. It lets organizations scan source code for:

· License information,
· Copyright notices,
· Export control relevant statements.

It makes software analysis more efficient by offering high precision with few false positives, greatly reducing overhead costs. FOSSology lets users generate compliance documentation according to the organization's needs, in a variety of data formats, emphasizing SPDX tag-value and RDF documents. FOSSology is an Open Source Software tool licensed under GPL-2.0 and a Linux Foundation collaboration project. The presentation points out important points to consider at software license analysis and how to generate high-definition SPDX documents. This presentation represents an prequel to the tutorial/training proposed for this event.
