A week or so ago Alfresco had Jason Haislmaier present to our sales team on legal/licensing issues in open source. I wanted my team to have a better understanding of potential customer concerns and how open source "copyleft" differs from traditional copyright. Jason is not Alfresco's counsel, but two of us had a friendship connection to him and so he graciously agreed to do the session...and he didn't even bill us in six-minute increments! :-) Jason is a partner with Holme Roberts & Owen LLP and a leading open-source legal practitioner.
The session was excellent and very well-received. I asked Jason if he would be willing to do it for a larger audience (you), and he accepted.
Here are the details:
What: 1-hour session covering open-source legal issues (e.g., What counts as software distribution? Implications of GPLv3? etc.)
When: August 29, 2007. 11:00 AM Eastern Time (8:00 PDT / 16:00 GMT)
How: Please register at https://www.gotomeeting.com/register/827387528.
Cost: Free, as in open source. :-)
This is a great chance to talk with one of the leading minds on open source law. No cost and no obligation. Just a useful knowledge share. You don't have to be an attorney - this is for those of novice to intermediate-level understanding of open-source legal issues.
Come with questions!
