Andrew Katz confirmed as a speaker at FOSDEM | 3 February 2018
We’re delighted to confirm, Moorcrofts CEO and Head of Technology, Andrew Katz will be speaking at FOSDEM taking place from 3 – 4 February 2018, in the beautiful city of Brussels (Belgium).
FOSDEM widely recognised as the best conference of its kind in Europe, is a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the widespread use of free and open source software. Now in its 18th year, this edition features 653 speakers, 685 events, and 57 tracks (series of talks). This will be Andrew’s 6th attendance at FOSDEM, and the 4th at which he has had a speaking slot.
Andrew will form part of the panel in the discussion on ‘Comparative Law of Licenses and Contracts in the EU and US’. He will be accompanied by Pamela Chestek, principal of Chestek Legal and Michaela MacDonald, Researcher at Queen Mary University of London. The panel will cover the recurrent issue of whether a free software licence should be interpreted as a bare licence or a contract, and what the consequences of that are in terms of interpretation, relief and enforcement under the laws of the US, England and the civil law jurisdictions of Europe.

FOSDEM is a free-to-attend no-registration event. Each year, a huge number (estimated to be up to 18,000 people) take over Brussels to talk about free and open source software and culture.
