Subject: [appnet] Meeting February 9, 10:30 am - 12:00pm - Open Source Licensing at UCB, the History, the Mystery

Meeting Announcement 

Topic: Open Source Licensing at UCB, the History, the Mystery.

Date: Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Time: 10:30-12:00

Location: 212 Cory Hall

Description:

Oliver Heyer, Associate Director at Educational Technology Services, will address ETS's experiences with open source development and licensing. Because of its early participation in the Sakai project, which was implemented at UCB as the recently retired bSpace, ETS has usually been disposed towards open sourcing its work (see https://github.com/ets-berkeley-edu). Recent projects that may have some commercial potential are demanding a re-examination of that stance, although an open source code base does not necessarily preclude a financial return to UCB and the authors of the software. Copyright, intellectual property, and licensing are interrelated, but separable facets of the equation.

RSVP - Please let us know if you're coming - if the attendance is high we may move to a larger room.
