The problem here is often that the author of the code has no clue about licenses or copyright either.
They'll create a repository on GitHub and assume it's now open source.


That however doesn't mean it isn't your problem. As I noted if you get, in writing, that the author said you can use it, then that would be sufficient.


Sander Rossel wrote:
But how would they know that in the first place?


Disgruntled employee. Random overheard comment. Partner company notices and reports it. Selling a product and someone finds the code. Due diligence for a sale and buyer requires that it be settled before sale can proceed. There are probably others.

Sander Rossel wrote:
And even if there is an audit, are they going to check all of our repositories, all with thousands of dependencies?


I know they have automated tools that can check for problems. I suspect they do manual audits as well. This is similar to security audits and since your company is paying for it, it doesn't matter what it costs (to them of course.)

And what happens ...


Yes those are problematic scenarios. And those are ones that have come up in the past where a widely used library must pull functionality or replace it because they were doing something incorrect before.
