James Vasile, Free Software Law Center
-on-
GPL3, The FOSS Legal Primer,
and The Interaction of Licenses & Communities

Please join us on Wednesday evening, for a presentation by James
Vasile of the Free Software Law Center on several legal topics of
interest to users of Free and Open Source Software. While version
three of the GPL is now old news, there are still some points about
it worth discussing, and many still have questions about what makes
it different from previous versions of the widely-used GNU General
Public License.

James will also be talking to us about the interaction between
licenses and communities.
