About this book

The reuse of existing code through their software developers is critical for firms to ensure efficient development of high-quality software. A recent facet of this topic is the increasing importance of reusing open source code which is often available free of charge via download from the internet, but brings along legal risks through its licenses. In this setting Manuel Sojer empirically investigates which factors influence software developers to reuse open source code and what causes them to comply with the resulting license obligations or not.
