Title: Legal issues in promoting FOSS in R+D projects - Policy, Organisation and Management
Authors: Bain, Malcolm
Other: European Opensource & Free Software Law Event (4th : 2011 : Barcelona)
Keywords: FOSS

Issue Date: 4-Nov-2011
Type: Conference lecture
Abstract: Creating and using FLOSS in R+D projects raises several legal issues, which need to be managed as soon as possible - preferably during the project planning stage. Challenges in the areas of project structure and policy, licenses and licensing, exploitation strategies, community management, and FLOSS-friendliness in general all have their legal aspects, which are commented here. Some recommendations are made for assisting in the use of FLOSS in R+D projects, especially in multiple party consortiums.
