Greetings,

SFLC.in in collaboration with the International Centre for Free and Open
Source Software (ICFOSS), is organizing a session on "Software and the
law: A Primer" on July 23, 2015 from 3.00 pm to 5.00 pm at Malabar Hall,
Park Centre, Technopark, Trivandrum.

The session will introduce the participants to the concepts of
trademarks, copyrights and patents.  The session particularly deals with
the issues of licensing of Free and Open Source Software and the
problems with patents in software. Participants will be introduced to
concepts like defensive patent pools that help to protect them from
legal actions b y aggressive patent holding companies.

The sessions will be handled by Prasanth Sugathan and Biju Nair,
counsels at SFLC.in.

We are immensely pleased to invite you for the session and look forward
to a fruitful exchange of ideas.


Warm regards,


Prasanth Sugathan
