IFOSSLR Open Source Law Review in Second Issue
The open source legal profession has established the International Free and Open Source Software Law Review (IFOSSLR) to discuss topics including copyrights, licensing, software patents, open standards, case law and statutes in the open source arena. The IFOSSLR now appears in its second issue.
The magazine set a goal to be published twice annually, including online. The publishers from the global law realm made the first issue available in July, 2009 (as we reported). The review articles first run through an editorial committee. The contents of volume 1, no. 2 include:
- "Open Source Policies and Processes for In-Bound Software" by Karen F. Copenhaver
- "Towards Free/Libre Open Source Software ('FLOSS') Governance in the Organisation" by Richard Kemp
- "A look at EDU 4 v. AFPA, also known as the 'Paris GPL-case'" by Martin von Willebrand
- "Passport Without a Visa: Open Source Software Licensing and Trademarks" by Harvey Anderson and Tiki Dare
- "Balancing Free with IP: If Open Source Solutions Become De Facto Standards Could Competition Law Start to Bite?" by Susannah Sheppard
- "Back to the Future: Hinton v Donaldson, Wood and Meurose (Court of Session, Scotland, 28th July, 1773)" by Iain G. Mitchell QC
The authors put their articles under licensing that allows free copying and distribution under certain conditions. Volume 1, no. 2 (2009) is available for download from IFOSSLR as PDF and HTML. The archives also include the first issue.
