Seminars on free software licensing & GPL compliance

by Joshua Gay Contributions Published on May 28, 2014 02:59 PM
The FSF's Licensing & Compliance Lab provides educational seminars on free software licenses. While registration is open to the public, our seminars generally target law students and legal professionals. When possible we try to get our courses approved for continuing legal education (CLE) credits.

The FSF regularly provides these seminars as a way to ensure that the legal community has access to high quality in-depth education on the workings of free software licenses. While we provide many materials for a general audience, these seminars and the materials they generate are directed at legal professionals and law geeks. The seminars are generally one-day in-person events, where attendees can meet and learn from top professionals in the field of free software licensing. You can keep up to date on announcements of future events by joining our FSF Licensing mailing list, or check out educational materials from our previous events, listed below.
