Open Source Insurance

More details are now available at CNET regarding insurance designed to protect against certain risks associated with open source software.

The insurance will cover up to $10 million in damages, including profit losses related to noncompliance with an open-source software license. The policy could, in some cases, cover the cost of repairing code that was found to infringe on open-source licenses such as the General Public License, which is used with the Linux operating system.
