Meeker Discusses Open Source in The Recorder

June 05, 2018

O’Melveny partner Heather Meeker was interviewed for the article, “How Tech’s In-House Lawyers Balance IP and Open Source,” published in the June 5, 2018, edition of The Recorder. The article explores ways to protect IP while contributing to the open source community.

Meeker, the Recorder reported, “compared common open source strategy to razor sales—companies can give away the razor and sell the blades. She said companies may choose to go the open source route for software that helps customers use their main product.”

Based in Silicon Valley, Meeker has achieved national and international recognition for her leadership in the field of intellectual property law. Drawing on her technical knowledge and experience, she approaches matters with a practical and business focus.
