Monthly Meetup

Copyright & Software
Presented by: Frank Siler (@fsiler)

Who cares about copyright? You should care because your decisions influence such factors as:

  • How others can legally use your software.
  • If your own projects become “infected” by a license you didn’t choose.
  • Whether you must distribute source code if you distribute or even use software to serve up content.
  • How others can use your photos on Flickr and other sources.
  • Understanding how Wikipedia and other open references work.
  • Whether you get sued for a LOT of money.

Frank will help us understand the basics of copyright and licensing and how it affects our lives and specifically our work as software developers.
