Hey Kid! Don't Copy That Floppy! by Aaron Kalin

Software licensing sets up rules for everyone to follow when contributing or using code. Some companies have specific policies on what types of licenses they allow in their code base. Some companies also put rules on their developers for how they're allowed to contribute to software. Got a licence for your code? We'll discuss why you need one and go over some popular options before you end up on the wrong side of a DMCA notice.

Aaron Kalin is a developer for Treehouse hailing from Chicago and has been programming for over 15 years. At night you'll find him hacking on game servers or experimenting with other programming languages. He's passionate about solving problems and enjoys giving back as much as possible. You'll sometimes find him dressed as a Stormtrooper to raise money for charity or cheering up sick kids in hospitals.

    Doh! I just got pulled into a work conflict... Berkeley used to have some great lectures from at least three of Pamela Samuelson's courses on intellectual property law (one specific to opensource). Sadly, I'm not sure they're available anymore.
