Paris “GPL” case in IFOSSLR

leave a comment »


The second issue of IFOSSLR was published yesterday.

Due to my blog on the Paris GPL case, I was actually asked to write a case law report to IFOSSLR. It was also published now.

I had the chance to read in advance Richard Kemp’s article Towards Free/Libre Open Source Software (“FLOSS”) Governance in the Organisation and heartily recommend it due to its building block approach and many examples.

I also just finished reading Andrew Katz’ book review on Law and the Internet and it surely was professional, but it was also entertaining!

Glad to see the publication flourishg: I and Mikko-Pekka Partanen are proposing a new article on open source compliance and the practical legal conclusions used in reviewing packages and source code and their license compliance. This is based on our work with Validos and has also a purpose to make public (and therefore subject to criticism and improvement) the compliance methodology used by Validos.
