The Software Freedom Conservancy recently announced a renewed effort for cross-project collaborative GPL compliance efforts that includes copyright holders from BusyBox, Linux, and Samba.  Conservancy built an internal system of communication and collaboration to take input from all stakeholders to discuss and engage in compliance activity to ensure compliance with the GPL throughout the technology industry and in particular in the embedded device market where Linux, BusyBox and Samba are so prevalent.

In this talk, Executive Director of Conservancy, Bradley M. Kuhn, will discuss how Conservancy handles compliance matters, what matters it focuses on, and how the copyright holders that work with Conservancy engage in a collaborative effort to ensure compliance with the GPL.
