FOSS: Standing on the shoulders of law (EOLE)
    Friday October 12, 2012 9:00am - 1:00pm @ Room Milan

    L'« European Open source and free software Law Event » est un événement juridique de référence qui réunit les acteurs européens prenant part aux aspects juridiques liés aux Logiciels Libres et Open Source.
    L'objectif de cet événement est de favoriser la mutualisation et la diffusion de connaissances juridiques, ainsi que le développement et la promotion de bonnes pratiques dans le domaine du Logiciel Libre. Il est programmé tous les ans dans un lieu différent  afin de partager, de confronter et d'améliorer les approches existantes au sein de l'Europe et au-delà.
    C'est un événement indépendant, à visée non commerciale et gratuit.

    L'événement de cette année est une édition « anniversaire » et le thème est volontairement large (« FOSS : standing on the shoulders of law »). Il favorisera l'étude du Logiciel Libre et Open Source au regard de son rattachement à la Loi, permettant de mettre en exergue les stratégies, de déterminer les obstacles à lever ainsi que les leviers accélérant son succès.


    The European Open source and free software Law Event is a unique legal oriented event which welcomes lawyers working with OS and people interested in this topic, from  Europe and the entire world.
    EOLE aims to promote the sharing and dissemination of legal knowledge on Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) licences, as well as the development and promotion of good practices in the field.
    This is an independant, non commercial and free event.

    This year’s event is a special anniversary Edition and its theme is voluntarily very broad ("FOSS : standing on the shoulders of law"). Legal experts will speak about which laws, regulations, rules or legal practices they find important for or relevant to the FOSS movement, be it some ground-breaking case law, new legal trends, contractual practices, recent initiatives from communities, or even more sector-related specificities.
