"F/OSS Licensing and distributing - Part 1" by Stephen J.Turnbull and Zev Blut

March's meeting is a discussion on Free and Open Source software licenses. After a short introduction to the application of intellectual property to software, we review some of the important dimensions of software licensing, giving as examples some of the widely-used, well-known licenses. Then we describe the mechanics of complying with upstream licenses (notices in source, documentation, and runtime banners, etc), and strategic issues that arise when working with multiple, imperfectly compatible licenses. Finally, we discuss advantages and disadvantages of various licensing strategies when choosing licenses for a new product.
