Open-Source Code, Legal Compliance, and Ethical Responsibility in Proprietary Software Development

Open source software is like a big, open playground for technology. Here, developers from all over the world share their code for anyone to use, improve, and share again. It’s all about working together and being open. But when this open software mixes with private, company-owned software, things get tricky. Companies and developers have to be really careful to follow the rules, making sure they use open source code the right way in their own projects.
