Title: Copyright Licensing of Free and Open Source Software

Speaker: Vance Kochenderfer

My previous Introduction to Copyright talk covered the basics of copyright law and how it applies to software.

This is a follow-on presentation discussing the most common licenses used for Free and Open Source software, covering items like:

  • How they operate within copyright law
  • How to apply one to your work
  • Why you would want to choose a particular license
  • What happens when disputes come up

If you have any questions about licensing, please bring them and I'll try to help. I can't guarantee that you'll get a correct answer, though.  :-)
