In this session we will have an open discussion of the various legal issues faced by developers starting a new open source project or contributing to an existing project. Depending on interest, we may talk about copyright, license selection, license compatibility, trademarks, patents, CLAs, "work for hire", data protection, and perhaps other topics.
