As they grow larger, FOSS projects need more than good coders and documentors—they need legal support and organizational infrastructure for continued success. The Software Freedom Law Center and the Software Freedom Conservancy, respectively, provide these services to FOSS projects.
At this BoF, we’ll briefly outline the services offered pro-bono to the FOSS community by these organizations, and then open the floor to discuss what challenges your project faces on these front.
We won’t be able to give formal legal advice at this session, but we can help your project leaders begin to think about these questions and make a plan for addressing them.
