Karen Sandler's LibrePlanet Keynote Discusses GPL Enforcement

March 31, 2015

Earlier this month, Conservancy announced our sponsorship of the GPL enforcement lawsuit against VMware, after years of Conservancy's efforts to convince VMware to follow the GPL's requirements. Last weekend, in her keynote speech at LibrePlanet 2015 Conservancy's Executive Director, Karen Sandler, discussed the case and general issues around GPL enforcement. The Free Software Foundation, which organizes the LibrePlanet Conference, released the video of that speech today.

The slides from the talk are also available.

The lawsuit has been widely supported by a wide variety of community organizations as well as individual kernel developers.

If you enjoy the speech, please support Conservancy by becoming a Conservancy supporter or donate directly toward Conservancy's GPL enforcement efforts, or donate in other ways. We're almost 95% of the way towards our $50,000 match goal so please donate now!
