Thank you Bradley, and I agree completely and strongly encourage
license-discuss subscribers to consider speaking at one or both of
these events!

Note: I corrected the imported typo in the CFP deadline date -- Sunday
25 November.

I've been involved in helping coordinate the Legal and Policy Issues
DevRoom since 2012 and for each year thereafter -- along with Karen
Sandler, bkuhn, and Tom Marble, though Tom deserves primary credit for
its success. :) Talk proposals are welcome from all!

While I am not involved in organizing CopyleftConf, I expect it will
be complementary to the FOSDEM DevRoom and will prove to be an
important community event in its own right. I encourage everyone to
submit proposals to the CopyleftConf CFP too!
