The Legal Side of Open Source

"The session will be focused on the legal side of open source like licensing. A lot of people know about the Open Source but very few people are aware of the importance of licensing in Open Source. Many people are confused about which to choose, which one is better for them.
Sharing creative work with the world can be an exciting and rewarding experience. It can also mean a bunch of legal things you didn’t know you had to worry about.
I will talk about why do people care about the legal side and why it is so important. I will also briefly talk about the different type of licenses available and Which open source license is appropriate for the project. What if someone wants to change the license of my project? Most projects never need to change licenses. But occasionally circumstances change."
