The Coalition and the Principles represent an opportunity to ensure that the emerging digital economy remains competitive and fair. They outline best practices for licensing of software that is intended to be run in the cloud and ensure the continued growth of a vibrant cloud services environment. For far too long, organizations have hesitated to share their experiences with policymakers and within the industry for fear of retaliatory measures that would further increase their cloud costs or threaten their very business. We are engaging current and potential members from a range of industrial sectors, including: cloud service providers (IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS), end-user facing companies, security services, startup and scale up entrants, and the venture capital community.
