Dear Open Source Colleagues: [Please copy and distribute under CC0
The PLI "Open Source and Free Software 2015" program will be on Wednesday,
December 16, 2015, in San Francisco. Please join us in person or on the web
<http://www.pli.edu/re.aspx?pk=158157&t=THF5_OPEN5> and earn continuing
legal education credits.
This is the agenda for our legal program this year:
* Luis Villa (Wikimedia), Gabriel Holloway (Leonard Street & Deinard)
and Marc Visnick (Johnson-Laird): These three popular speakers will define
the open source community and describe its licenses for those new to this
area of intellectual property in software.
* David Marr (Qualcomm) and MItch Segal (Hewlett-Packard): Attorneys
for large technology companies describe their own best practices for open
source license enforcement, and identify the standards they expect from
their software vendors' development ecosystems.
* Heather Meeker (O'Melveny & Myers) and MIchel Jaccard (id est
avocats sarl): Keep abreast of open source litigation in the US and Europe.
* Harrison "Buzz" Frahn (Simpson Thacher & Bartlett) and Gwyn Murray
(Matau Legal Group): Earn one unit of ethics credit with this NEW topic for
our legal open source program -- and learn ways to recognize and to
eliminate bias in the engineering and legal profession.
* Pamela Chestek (Chestek Legal) and Stephen LaPorte (Wikimedia):
These trademark specialists will describe new efforts in the open source
community to create and protect trademarks for free software.
* Heather Meeker (O'Melveny & Myers), Cliff Allen (Microsoft), Duane
Valz (Google), Jim Wright (Oracle), Lawrence Rosen (Rosenlaw & Einschlag):
A closing panel on HOT TOPICS. This expert panel will alert you to critical
issues for open source attorneys, and answer your questions.
