LinuxCon Japan is the premiere Linux conference in Asia that brings together a unique blend of core developers, administrators, users, community managers and industry experts.
CloudOpen Japan is a conference celebrating and exploring the open source projects, technologies and companies who make up the cloud. It’s built on a belief that open works: for users, for industry and for technology.
This talk will explore developments in Open Source governance around the world over the last twelve months with a particular focus on the outcomes of recent events, meetings and discussions held in Europe, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. It will explain how Open Source is being managed in server, desktop, mobile and embedded products, and discusses how this knowledge will prove useful for future products in the automative market. It will put emphasis on how governance is broader than technical or legal concerns, and includes issues of business strategy.
This talk is intended for project leaders, legal experts and managers who want to understand copyright, trademark and patent challenges in the context of the commercial market. It will be delivered in accessible language by one of the most experienced figures in this area, based on his work supporting Linux and wider OSS technologies.
