For Open Source legal questions you will likely want to reach out to:

Brendan Scott IT Law Open Source Law

If you want guidance on setting up an Open Source strategy which works 
in a business context, then I've been doing quite a bit of consulting in 
that area. In particular, I've been helping agencies answer numerous 
versions of this problem:
//Collaboration in the Open Source sense involves reciprocity, 
co-development, community building, meritocracy, and do-ocracy. It is 
time consuming, imprecise, unreliable, hard to manage, rarely addresses 
short term objectives, hard to quantify in a business case, and rarely 
mentioned in acquisition guides. And yet, in a digital economy, good 
collaborative communities almost always out-innovate and out-compete 
closed or centrally controlled initiatives. There are more people in the 
rest of the world solving your problems than you can ever muster in your 
own team./

Feel free to reach out if interested.
Warm regards,
