FOSSology is an open source license compliance software system and toolkit. As a toolkit, you can run license, copyright and export control scans from the command line. As a system, a Web interface provides you with a compliance workflow. License, copyright and export control scanners are tools used in the workflow.

Analyzing open source license compliance requires expert knowledge. Consequently, the use of the tool requires understanding of license analysis problems and how they are covered by FOSSology. The following elements are provided:

Challenges in real world examples at license analysis

Learning how to cope with license proliferation and custom license texts

Efficiently managing large open source components with heterogeneous licensing

Saving work with reusing license conclusions of open source packages when analyzing
