The Devil is in the Details

A session at FOSDEM 2013

Saturday 2nd February, 2013

12:00pm to 12:50pm (WET)

Roadblocks on the path to free software?

Free software seemingly enjoys large support from the public sector. Top level politicians from all corners of the European Union are expressing their support for open formats and open source software implementations, and more and more municipalities and local authorities start the painstaking course of migration. At the same time, this dedication does not translate into a larger scale dedication to reform the systems which create roadblocks for open and free source entrepreneurs. The patent and copyright systems seem as irrevocably broken as ever they were. What can we expect from the future, and how do we deal with the present?
