The Free Software Legal and Licensing Workshop

The Free Software Legal and Licensing Workshop is held every year to allow legal experts to discuss issues and best practices surrounding Free Software licenses. The Free Software Legal and Licensing Workshop has become the world's premier event for debating, discussing and sharing knowledge around Free Software legal affairs. In 2012 the workshop will once again take place in Amsterdam on April 12/13 2012. The motto of this year's — 5th anniversary! — incarnation of the workshop is "seeing towards the future". Instead of rehashing familiar topics, we want to look at what problems we will likely encounter in the next five to ten years. Each day we will therefore have two topics to tickle your minds and spur interesting debate in the room as well as the hallway. As always, the workshop is under Chatham House Rule, to encourage an open and unencumbered debate.


This year we will cover the following four interesting topics:
