Copyright, Copyleft, and Software Licensing Shootout

Tim Thatcher


Join us at LUGOD this month for a software licensing showdown! This talk will touch on some of the history of software copyrights, patent law, Open Source, Copyleft, the GNU Public License, and a review and comparison of some of the other common and not-so-common software licenses that software developers (and others) can use to protect their work.
