Greetings,

SFLC.in is a non-profit legal services organisation based out of New Delhi
working to protect the civil liberties of citizens in the digital space.  
We are organizing a session on

"Software and the law: A Primer" on July 25, 2015 from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm 
at the Startup Village, Cochin.

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 
by 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,

--
