Huang: Open Source Could Be a Casualty of the Trade War

Friday June 21, 2019. 04:07 PM , from
Bunnie Huang writes
about the escalating trade wars and how they could be harmful to the
open-source community. 'Because the administrative action so far
against Huawei relies only upon export license restrictions, the Linux
Foundation has been able to find shelter under a license exemption for open
source software. However, should Huawei be designated as a 'foreign
adversary' under EO13873, it greatly expands the scope of the ban because
it prohibits transactions with entities under the direction or influence of
foreign adversaries. The executive order also broadly includes any
information technology including hardware and software with no exemption
for open source.'
