= Questions/Requested Information

  1. What is your proposal?

A discussion of the current state of legal affairs in Fedora. I'll start with an overview of the current policies and practices that exist because for legal reasons, then discuss our stance on licensing, export compliance, patents, and trademarks. I'll throw in some specific changes that have occurred in the last year, and have a fun discussion on any questions or issues that the Fedora community wants to bring up. Has your bug been sitting in FE-LEGAL forever? Has no one replied to your legal@lists.fedoraproject.org email? Do you want to hear about cupcakes? Are you bringing the speaker a fine alcoholic beverage for his troubles? If any of these are true (especially the last one), then you should enjoy this talk.

Mitigating Fedora's legal risks are the responsibility of all of its community members, and the best way the community to be successful at this is to understand the problem space and know when they need to escalate a concern.

  1. Who in addition to the speaker needs to be in the room for this to succeed? This could be the audience you need to reach, other participants in the conversation, or other stakeholders.

No one specifically (thankfully), but people seem to enjoy my talks, so I guess if you meet that criteria, add your name below:

  1. Is this a…
  • 25/50 minutes: Talk
  1. Anything else we need to know?

In Switzerland, it is illegal to own just one guinea pig.

  1. Who are you?
  • Name: Tom Callaway
  • FAS ID: spot
  • IRC Nick, if not FAS ID: spot

I'm definitely interested in this and would like to participate!

Indeed, I'd like to attend this talk :)

Are you proposing a 25 or a 50 minute talk?
