ZOOOM @ SFSCon 2022
The ZOOOM Project is taking part in the FSFE Legal Education Day Track at SFSCon 2022 with the support of our partners Fondazione Hub Innovazione Trentino (Italy) and Free Software Foundation Europe (Germany)!
The South Tyrol Free Software Conference, SFSCON, is one of Europe’s most established annual conferences on Free Software. SFSCON promotes the use of Free Software in digital infrastructures as a tool to achieve greater innovation and competitiveness. This year edition took place in Bolzano, Italy, on 11-12 November 2022.
Digital freedoms that free software grants to users and developers rely on legal instruments and the legal system to be able to enforce them. Nevertheless, it can be difficult to understand and comply with the legal frameworks involved that guarantee the continued enjoyment of these freedoms. Understanding and complying with free software legal and licensing obligations is important to keep a software project safe from legal threats, and to build a healthy free software environment based on openness and community.
The FSFE Legal Education Day Track features a few talks, Q&A sessions as well as a workshop in order to facilitate a better understanding of these legal frameworks and compliances. The talks aim to explain basic legal concepts such as licenses, copyright law, and its practical application into projects with the FSFE’s REUSE Initiative, as well as other legal topics important for developers and the free software community in general.
Stay tuned for the recordings of the workshop!
