   Topics: F/OSS Licensing and distributing
           by Stephen J.Turnbull and Zev Blut

March's meeting is a discussion on Free and Open Source software
licenses.  After a short introduction to the application of
intellectual property to software, we review some of the important
dimensions of software licensing, giving as examples some of the
widely-used, well-known licenses.  Then we describe the mechanics of
complying with upstream licenses (notices in source, documentation,
and runtime banners, etc), and strategic issues that arise when
working with multiple, imperfectly compatible licenses.  Finally, we
discuss advantages and disadvantages of various licensing strategies
when choosing licenses for a new product.

Other items on the agenda are: 1. Introduction of new members, news
about Linux/Open Source, general announcements, Q&A 2. Auction

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone. There are no membership dues or entrance

After the meeting, we will continue chatting over a few beers.

About TLUG

of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools.  TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings.  Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
