Next Meeting

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

Date: Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Time: 10:30-12:00

Location: 212 Cory Hall


Oliver Heyer, Associate Director at Educational Technology Services, will address ETS's experiences with open source development and licensing.

Copyright, intellectual property, and licensing are interrelated, but separable facets of the equation.
