Moonlighting in Sunlight – How to work on independent projects and have a day job.

A session at Open Source Bridge 2010

Tuesday 1st June, 2010

1:30pm to 2:15pm (PST)

Two local lawyers will discuss the legal issues and best practices involved in balancing the interests of employers, employees and projects. Topics to be addressed may include:
1) For employees: Does my employer own what I work on in my spare time? Can my employer stop me from writing my own blog? Can I use something I developed at work in my side project?
2) For employers: How do I get good employees without risking my proprietary products? Can I allow employees to participate in open source projects?
3) For projects: How do I get good contributors without risking claims from their employers?
