Analyse your whole project at one go!

Usually, you have to apply OSCAd to each single open source program or license in a project. If the software is used only internally, this process can often be simplified by the following form.
Question Explanation Answer
Distribution to 3rd parties? Is the open source application or library ever distributed to any third party (including other legal units of your company)?
Software modifications? Do you modify any of the open source software that your project wants to use?
Only licenses supported by OSLiC? Does your project use only open source software that has been licensed under one of the following open source licenses, which are covered by OSLiC:Apache-2.0, BSD-2-Clause, BSD-3-Clause, EPL-1.0, EUPL-1.1, GPL-2.0, GPL-3.0, LGPL-2.1, LGPL-3.0, MIT, MPL-2.0, MS-PL, PHP-3.0, PostgreSQL

Challenge: Sometimes a project uses many open source libs and apps.

OSCAd is intended to be used for each individual open source software program or library used by a project. That is necessary because you have to fulfill the license conditions for every single open source software. In general grouping is not possible.

Solution: Simplification only for particular use-cases

But if you use the open source software only internally without distributing it to any third party, the OSCAd analysis often (but not always) leads to the same conclusion: you have to do nothing but to respect some interdictions.

Implementation: Answer three questions to determine the use-case

This check determines whether all software packages that you use are covered by a use-case that allows a simplfied solution. If it is, you will get a list of interdictions that apply to all of the open source software that you want to use and you won't have to call the OSCAd for each single open source software package.
