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