Our UK and Ireland branch of the Licensing Executives Society (LES) is having an event on open source on Wednesday 10th September 2008 at 5:30 PM (speakers starting at 6). From the event description (DOC file):
Free and open source software has had a radical impact on how we – both individuals and businesses – use and develop software. At this event, three speakers will discuss open source software from three different perspectives. We will hear an introduction to the subject from an IP and IT barrister (ed note – David Harris mentioned below). This introduction will be followed by commentaries by two speakers from very different places in the IT world: Mark Lange of Microsoft and Gerry Gavigan of the Open Source Consortium.
The event will be at Withers LLP, 16 Old Bailey, London, EC4M 7EG. Cost for LES Members is £20.00, non-members is £40.00. An optional dinner will follow (venue to be confirmed) for £35.00
Posting information about IP events will be a regular feature here on Tangible IP. I’m looking into how we will get it set up so that we can have a well integrated calendar with the site. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
