Copyleft Conf: Registration is Open

Copyleft Conf: Registration is Open

…and the Schedule is Posted

January 10, 2019

Conservancy is very excited to share the schedule for the first ever Copyleft Conf with you! Copyleft Conf is a one day event, taking place in downtown Brussels at Digityser. Registration begins at 9:30am and we’ll be finishing by 6pm. We’ll have talks, a panel and participatory discussions near the end of the day.

Participants from throughout the copyleft world — developers, strategists, enforcement organizations, scholars and critics — will be welcomed for an in-depth, high bandwidth, and expert-level discussion about the day-to-day details of using copyleft licensing, obstacles facing copyleft and the future of copyleft as a strategy to advance and defend software freedom for users and developers around the world.


The venue has a finite amount of space and registration includes lunch which will be provided onsite. Please register in advance so we can plan for everyone’s needs — including yours. Professional tickets are available for $100 and tickets for student/unemployed/underemployed or non-profit employed folks are $15. If $15 is still prohibitive or you plan to attend as press, please drop us a line.

Coming in from out of town or wondering where to stay and whether Copyleft Conf is walkable from your hotel? We’ve got you covered. All the location information is right here.

Code of Conduct

Copyleft Conf has a robust code of conduct. We feel strongly that the future of free software depends on an open, welcoming and evolving conversation around licensing practices and compliance. The copyleft licenses that many of the world’s largest free software projects — like Linux, Git, Drupal and WordPress — rely on must be both well understood and used in good faith. This conversation around copyleft is well overdue. We can’t afford to turn away those who would help us build the bridges to increase adoption and achieve better compliance.
