Sign up for the FSF's next seminar on GPL Enforcement and Legal Ethics

by Joshua Gay Contributions Published on Feb 18, 2014 04:58 PM
Registration is now open for the FSF's seminar on GPL Enforcement and Legal Ethics, which is being held on Monday, March 24th, 2014, at Suffolk University Law School.

Attendees of this half-day, three-session seminar will learn about: copyleft and other important concepts in the GNU General Public License; best practices in the free software licensing enforcement process; and ethical considerations important to any lawyer working with clients involved in free software.

While registration is open to the public, this seminar is a special opportunity for law students and legal professionals, who can potentially earn continuing legal education (CLE) credits for participating.

Now is the perfect time for your employer to become an FSF Corporate Patron and receive two complimentary passes to the event.

Please help us spread the word!

The event sessions will be led by some wonderful friends and colleagues in the free software community, whom many of you may already know, including Karen Sandler, executive director of the GNOME Foundation and former general counsel of the Software Freedom Law Center; Bradley Kuhn, president of the Software Freedom Conservancy and a member of the FSF's Board of Directors, and Donald R. Robertson, III, J.D., the FSF's Copyright and Licensing Associate.

A detailed agenda, as well as curriculum materials, will soon be posted on the event page. If you have any questions, please contact

Thanks in advance for helping us spread the word and we hope to see you at the event!

P.S. The seminar is scheduled for the day after the Free Software Foundation's LibrePlanet 2014 conference -- and so we hope those planning on attending the CLE event will consider making a weekend of it by also signing up for and attending LibrePlanet.
