PLUG AT: Embedded GNU/Linux and GPL compliance
Free Geek

Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics:

Embedded GNU/Linux and GPL compliance. How not to make a mess of things by Beth Flanagan of Intel

As GNU/Linux becomes more and more common in the consumer device market, the number of GPL violations found by various compliance organizations have increased dramatically. We'll discuss how violations occur, what to do if you find yourself in violation and how the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded-Core helps you to avoid a costly GPL violation action.

Beth 'pidge' Flanagan is the maintainer of the licensing infrastructure for the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded-Core, maintainer of the yocto-autobuilder and build and release engineer for the Yocto Project. She has spoken on a wide range of topics over the years, from GPL compliance in the embedded world to open source firearms. She works full time on the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded-Core for Intel's Open Source Technologies Center.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne after the meeting.
