Cupcakes: Fedora Legal Simplified

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A discussion of the current state of legal affairs in Fedora. I'll start with an overview of the current policies and practices that exist because for legal reasons, then discuss our stance on licensing, export compliance, patents, and trademarks. I'll throw in some specific changes that have occurred in the last year, and have a fun discussion on any questions or issues that the Fedora community wants to bring up. Has your bug been sitting in FE-LEGAL forever? Has no one replied to your legal@lists.fedoraproject.org email? Do you want to hear about cupcakes? Are you bringing the speaker a fine alcoholic beverage for his troubles? If any of these are true (especially the last one), then you should enjoy this talk.

Mitigating Fedora's legal risks are the responsibility of all of its community members, and the best way the community to be successful at this is to understand the problem space and know when they need to escalate a concern.
