Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) today announces that the second European
Licensing and Legal Workshop will be held at the Hotel Okura on the 23rd and
the 24th of April 2009 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This conference will
provide a forum for discussions on supply chain management, compliance
procedures, licence management, community interaction, and other legal issues
related to the growth of the European Free Software market.
The European Licensing and Legal Workshop is an event held primarily for the
members of the European Legal Network, a private, non-partisan network of 185
Free Software experts across 27 countries and 4 continents facilitated by FSFE.
There is limited space available at the event and attendance for non-network
members is by invitation only. Projects and companies interested in
participating should contact the FTF at ftf at fsfeurope.org.
The European Licensing and Legal Workshop is kindly supported by Bender von
Haller Dragsted, Blackduck, Canonical, HP and Mozilla.
This event is one of the activities of FSFE's Freedom Task Force (FTF). The
FTF is an infrastructure activity to help individuals, projects and businesses
understand Free Software licensing and the opportunities that it presents. The
FTF works in partnership with gpl-violations.org to deal with licence
violations in the European arena. The goal of the FTF is to foster best
practice throughout the industry.
