The Carneades software system provides support for constructing, evaluating and visualizing arguments, using formal representations of facts, concepts, defeasible rules and argumentation schemes. This paper illustrates features of Carneades with a prototype legal application for analyzing open source software license compatibility issues in particular cases. The Carneades system provides a unique combination of features that make to our knowledge applications of this kind possible for the first time.
