Press for Black Duck Software

While the world economy suffered in 2009, mobile open source projects experienced robust growth, according to an analysis by Black Duck Software that reflects the relative health of the mobile industry and growing interest in applications developed on open source software (OSS) platforms. Black Duck Software is the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software. Black Duck's KnowledgeBase -- the industry's most comprehensive database of open source project information -- was used to analyze 2009 trends in mobile open source development.

Black Duck Software, the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, today announced enhancements to Protex, the code analysis engine that is a core component of the Black Duck Suite, a comprehensive platform for managing the use of open source in a multi-source development process.

Black Duck Software, the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, has been granted a patent protecting core technology that can automatically identify license obligations and resolve license conflicts for legally-protectable content (e.g. software, multimedia, video, audio, textual representations, works of art, visual representations, technological know-how, business know-how, contract rights, and/or software elements, etc.).
