Chicago, IL (Vocus) January 22, 2009
Does open source play a role in your company? Whether you use or produce open source software, understanding the business and legal ramifications behind open source is critical.
Saper Law Offices is hosting the Saper Law Open Source Symposium in Chicago to bring together members of the open source community for an in-depth discussion of important legal topics related to open source software. Leading Software-as-a-Service developer Delivered Innovation is sponsoring the event.
The full day conference will feature panels of experts ranging from independent software developers to software giants such as Microsoft. Attorneys from Saper Law will lead discussions on licensing and intellectual property issues, and speakers from the academic community will address the influence of policy on the open source movement. New open source licensing compliance software will also be debuted in an afternoon demonstration.
“We support the leadership role that Saper Law has taken in driving awareness of key legal issues in the local technology community,” notes Michael Topalovich, founder and CTO of Delivered Innovation. “The Open Source Symposium is a must-attend event for anyone involved with open source in their organization.”
