Everything you need to know about standards and
open source software and the organizations that create them
The goal of ConsortiumInfo.org is to be the most comprehensive source of information on the Internet regarding standards setting and open source software development, and about the roles these essential tools play in business and society.
The Essential Guide is a concise handbook for anyone who wants to understand standards and standards development from a hands-on perspective: how to decide what standard setting organization (SSO) to join, how to get the most out of one after you do, and how to create an SSO if the right one doesn’t already exist.
This site is hosted by Gesmer Updegrove LLP, a technology law firm internationally known for forming and representing more of the consortia and foundations that create and promote standards and open source software – over 230 to date – than any other law firm in the world. You can find a summary of our services here. To learn how GU can help you form a consortium or open source foundation, represent you in standards-related litigation, optimize your standards strategy, or address intellectual property rights issues, contact: Andrew Updegrove
