GPL Compliance/Enforcement session
Karen M. Sandler
Monday 2 p.m.–3 p.m.
Target audience: Developer
As promised on the ksummit-discuss mailing list, this is one of several sessions intended to discuss GPL enforcement and receive feedback from those who would like to do so. It will also be an opportunity to ask questions about Conservancy’s enforcement efforts, as well as those led by other people, to the extent we are aware of them.
