The First Annual Copyleft Conference is ready to receive your proposals for twenty-five minute talks and for eighty minute discussions you would be willing to lead. The conference will be held in Brussels, on February 4th (aka the Monday after FOSDEM.)
Participants from throughout the copyleft world — developers, strategists, enforcement organizations, scholars and critics — will be welcomed for an in-depth, high bandwidth, and expert-level discussion about the day-to-day details of using copyleft licensing, obstacles facing copyleft and the future of copyleft as a strategy to advance and defend software freedom for users and developers around the world.
Since this is the very first Copyleft Conf, we are relying heavily on word-of-mouth to attract speakers and participants so we heartily encourage you to share these announcements with your friends and colleagues. We want to make sure we reach everyone who is interested in learning or sharing their knowledge. Thanks in advance for your help!
