FSF Seminars Explaining the GPL in NYC January 20, 21

This might interest you. We all have debated and seen debated various interpretations of the GPL. This is your opportunity to get your
questions answered authoritatively.
The Free Software Foundation is hosting a two-day seminar on the GPL, "Free Software Licensing and the GNU GPL" on January 20 and 21 at
Columbia Univeristy Law School in New York City. The seminars will be co-led by Daniel Ravicher, Senior Counsel to FSF, and Bradley M. Kuhn,
Executive Director of FSF. The seminar is designed for, as the FSF announcement puts it, "lawyers, software developers and managers who
run (or have clients who run) software businesses that modify and/or redistribute software under terms of the GNU GPL or LGPL, or who wish
to make use of existing GPL'd and LGPL'd software in their enterprise."
If your boss has questions about the GPL, maybe he'd like to go or will pay to send you or the company's attorney. Or, if you are the boss or
an attorney and/or programmer and have questions you really want answered, this is the chance to learn exactly how the GPL works in detail.
They will be covering the GPL section by section. Of course, as we have discovered on Groklaw, you don't have to be a lawyer to be
interested in the law.
There is also a lunch series, "SCO Without Fear", during the lunch break both days, described as conversations with Eben Moglen, General
Counsel to the FSF, discussing the case and the GPL, from 12:30 to 2 both days.
On January 20, the seminar will be the section-by-section explanation of the GPL, "Detailed Study and Analysis of GPL and LGPL". The
following day, it will be "GPL Compliance Case Studies and Legal Ethics in Free Software Licensing," which will present the details of five
different GPL compliance cases handled by FSF's GPL Compliance Laboratory. Details on the seminars can be found here and here.
The fee for the two-day "SCO Without Fear" lunch series is $250, or $150 for one day. Lunch is included. For those on a budget or those only
interested in the SCO case and its relationship to the GPL, this is an option. People who have registered for the seminars at Columbia Law
School, which costs $595 for the series, do not have to pay for the lunch series for the day(s) they are attending the seminar(s). FSF
Associate Members and Corporate Patrons receive a 20% discount. Contact info is here.
Yes, of course, I am crazy wild to go and learn. I just don't see how I can make it, so if you go, Groklaw would love to hear from you about
your experience and what you learned.
