Open Source and the Law at HackPittsburgh

Have you ever wondered how the law treats open source software? If you are a software developer, an open source software enthusiast, or generally interested in high-tech law, you won’t want to miss this event! On Friday, December 7th, Megan Costello, J.D., will talk about open source software from a legal perspective. Unlike traditional legal talks, Megan’s presentation promises to be engaging and technologist-friendly in a fun and relaxed environment. She will address some of the major legal issues that technologists should know about open source software.

The doors open at 7 and the talk begins at 7:30.
