Y Combinator Open Sources Funding Documents…Venture Lawyers Leave Office Early

By Venture Capital

Well I guess that’s it folks. I had a fun ride. Y Combinator has “open sourced” legal documents they provide to their startups seeking funding. The documents were created by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Y Combinator’s law firm.

But as of 7:39PST on August 13, there is a “glitch” with the link to the open source documents. Here is the current message you get if you click the link to the documents:

Sorry, there’s a glitch with the documents and we had to take them down. We hope to have something back soon.

I’m wonder if by “glitch with the documents” they really mean that Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is not exactly happy with this particular open source movement.
