Melbourne Meetup - Free Software/Open Source licences and why do they matter

Hey there freedom lovers,

It is that time of the month again where we get together to dig deep into all things digital freedom.

This month Ben Minders will be talking about Open Source licences and why do they matter. It is one thing to make the worlds best program, it is another issue to inform the users how they are allowed to use it. If you don't know what license is best for your work and how the users can use it; you can be left in the lurch. Can you share with others? Are modifications allowed? Can you even use it with other programs? This is a talk that can guide you to allocate a license for a project or if you are just using the programs, to help you choose programs that treat you fairly.

There will also be the usual Gnews of the month followed by dinner and discussion at KL Bunga Raya after the event.

Doors open at 6pm with the main event starting at 6:30pm and dinner to follow in North Melbourne after 8:00 pm.

This is a non-technical event and all guest are welcome.
