Open Source Entrepreneur Meetup: Open Source Legal and Licensing

  • CIC Cambridge 1 Broadway, 5th floor, Venture Cafe Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

In this meetup, we'll talk about the particulars of open source licensing as well as other legal matters to consider when managing an open source project or product:

- what is the role of copyright and trademark law?
- how much liability do you assume for patent infringement?
- what are the vagaries of popular open source licenses with respect to IP laws?
- what's the best license to choose for a project with commercial aspirations?

There will be experts speaking on these topics, followed by an open discussion guided by attendees. Hope to see you there!
