CFP: Legal and Licensing Aspects of Open Source at OWF 2011

Licensing is an important component of every free software and open
source project. This is especially true as an increasing number of
corporations are adopting and distributing open source applications and
code. This track considers various legal and licensing aspects of open
source, both from a community and a corporate perspective.

This track is a great opportunity for you to discuss legal and licensing
aspects of open source with lawyers, decision makers, open source
developers and other people who are interested in legal aspects of open
source.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of topics we would like to cover:

- Contributor agreements and copyright assignment (e.g. Harmony)
- Standards for exchanging license data (e.g. SPDX)
- Open source licensing in the cloud (e.g. AGPL; open source in Javascript)
- Open source compliance (tools, processes, etc)
- Open source and patents
- Incorporating projects as non-profit organizations

Please send a title and an abstract (5-15 lines) of your talk, with a short
(5-10 lines) bio and the expected length of your talk (50 minutes for
longer talks, 25 minutes for short talks) to Martin Michlmayr at tbm@...

Final date for submission: August 7, 2011

Your are correct. That feature is not planned for this release.

I would need to reread the spec, but if so the formulation could maybe

I think that would be an excellent approach handling this. Any

Microsoft Windows Rally Development Kit License Agreement

Armijn Hemel <armijn@...>
 

hi all,

I have encountered the Microsoft Windows Rally Development Kit License Agreement quite a few times in GPL tarballs.

Strictly speaking this is not an open source license at all, but source code that is using the license has ended up in many devices and the packages have often been labelled as 'GPL'.

An example of it can be found here:

http://svn.dd-wrt.com:8000/browser//src/router/lltd/osl-linux.c?rev=16674

These seem like examples of the things we may want to "templatize" in the
standard licenses. Those efforts have been delayed behind other items. The
legal team can speak to these specific issues of whether we would consider
them equivalent.

Question on DRAFT 20110605 (package cardinality/verification)

Mario Tokarz <mario@...>
 

Hi all,

I have two questions regarding the latest spec from your home
page. Thanks in advance for the time and consideration.

1.) Page 10 states that "A package can contain subpackages". How would
those be added to the description, they do not seem to be part of the
data model as shown on pg 35.

Supporting subpackages with a full set of metadata seems to be a good
approach to support descriptions of a full system image.

2.) Page 11/12: While package verification code is optional (most
likely to be used when SPDX is not part of the src-archive), the
verification code is mandatory.

While discussing this with a colleague we could not quite figure out
why this is the case or whether this should be better one or the other
(i.e. it is mandatory to have one of the two within one description).


I would be glad to get some thoughts on this.

Thx,
Mario

optional effective license of a package.

dmg
 

hi everybody,

We (the research team I am part of, which includes Armijn) have being
building a method/tool to identify dependencies in binaries by observing
the build process.

One of the test cases we are using is ffmpeg. What makes ffmpeg
interesting is that it can be configured and build under three different
licenses: LGPLv2.1+, GPLv2+, or GPLv3+.

How? you pass a parameter at compilation time that indicates which
license you want (by default lgplv2.1+).

How would this be described in SPDX?

A similar licensing scheme is the FreeBSD kernel. By default is BSD-3 (if
I remember correctly) but it can be compiled as GPLv2+.
