(5th Edition – 12-13 October 2012 – Paris / OWF and La Cantine)
Special 5th anniversary
“FOSS: Standing on the shoulders of law”
We are happy to go back to Paris to celebrate the FIFTH ANNIVERSARY of the EOLE project. We are also delighted to announce collaboration with the Open World Forum, which will host the event.
This year’s event is a special anniversary Edition. Its theme is voluntarily very broad to allow the speakers to propose speeches about which laws, regulations, rules or legal practices they find important for or relevant to the FOSS movement, be it some ground breaking case law, new legal trends, contractual practices, recent initiatives from communities, or even more sector-related specificities. The only criterion is that the speech should report on a detailed legal analysis on a legal issue pertaining to the development, use, distribution and/or the exploitation of FOSS. We encourage the candidates to share practical experiences (case studies), to summarize and give their opinion on some “classics” of Foss law or to raise prospective issues.
EOLE Legal Barcamp
A "legal barcamp" at "La Cantine" (by Silicon Sentier, a technology focused “coworking” or collaborative workplace) will be organized the second day (Saturday 13th).
Everyone (lawyers, developers and any people aiming to work on or suggest a legal projects) will be welcome !
