Software Eats the (Commons/Public Licensing) World (It Should!) - Mike Linksvayer, Creative Commons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Following FLOSS temporally (and very loosely otherwise), free/libre/open access/education/content/hardware/everything are largely silo'd from FLOSS and each other: legally (incompatible licenses) and in terms of knowledge, people, politics, and practice. How did this happen? Is it harmful? What are strategies for fixing it over the next years? How such will help Linux and FLOSS. What can you do?

Audience is anyone interested in FLOSS legal/policy issues and strategy, free/libre/open beyond FLOSS, amateur history and wild speculation. Expect mix of policy-interested developers, FLOSS politicians, legal. No technical expertise required.
