Asian Legal Network launched
Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE), Open Invention Network (OIN), and The Linux Foundation announced today the launch of the Asian Legal Network. The Asian Legal Network was established to provide a leading forum for sharing knowledge and best practices regarding Free Software legal affairs, particularly those that relate to market participants in Asia.
The Asian Legal Network’s inaugural conference is taking place today, March 14, 2014. This by invitation only event - the Asian Legal and Licensing Workshop - is an important opportunity for members to meet and discuss the future of the Asian Free Software market from a legal perspective. The workshop features speeches and discussions with select lawyers and experts involved in GNU/Linux and Free Software, including Karsten Gerloff (FSFE), Keith Bergelt (OIN), Linda Biel (AST), and Xinzhu Zhang (Global Economics Group).
The Asian Legal Network complements the global Legal Network, through which FSFE has been facilitating an ongoing conversation among the world's leading legal experts on Free Software since 2006.
