Finding licenses in open source software is crucial to determine involved licensing and license obligations when using open source software. FOSSology is a software project that is specialized in identifying license relevant statements. It supports further compliance tasks, such as the identification of copyright statements or the generation of SPDX files. FOSSology is a collaboration project of the Linux Foundation. It is free software licensed under the GPL-2.0; therefore all organisations can download, use and extend FOSSology to their own needs.

Recently, new technology has been introduced for FOSSology, which is going towards more automation by providing a REST API for example. New scanning approaches have been developed which enables more automation at imprecise licensing. This presentation explains how users of FOSSology can use the new features.
