The Sonatype License Obligation Review tool (LORT) is a curated database of open source license obligations across multiple categories, types, and threat groups. LORT helps open source governance teams clearly understand their license obligations to better define policies.
LORT displays all license obligations including non-standard terms, copyright information, and commercial use restrictions in a single view. Legal teams save time from manually reviewing every open source license to identify risk.
LORT is continuously updated by the Sonatype Data Research team, providing lawyers with the reasoning behind the predefined license threat groups and policies within Nexus Lifecycle. By clearly understanding every license obligation, legal teams can use policies as is or create new ones based on their risk tolerance.
