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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
