Description

Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) (Licensing): A Crash Course for Computer Scientists

Millions of people make use of free and open-source software. The infrastructure of the internet relies on it, as do the servers of large and small organisations. Without FOSS, the internet as we know it would not exist. In this talk Felix Stegerman, Deputy Coordinator Netherlands of the Free Software Foundation Europe and bachelor student CS, will give a quick overview of the history and definition of FOSS and its relation to fundamental freedoms, vendor dependence, privacy and autonomy. He will discuss its relevance to individuals, the public sector, academia, and businesses; including how using Free Software in a commercial context relates to business models. Felix will point to the differences between the traditional "copyleft" and modern popular free software licenses and will underline their advantages and disadvantages in a number of use cases.
