Bradley M. Kuhn
Recorded: March 9, 2012Language: English

Free, Libre & Open Source Software (FLOSS) began as a not-for-profit endeavor. FLOSS licenses permit commercial & non-commercial activity, but the heart of FLOSS remains in the not-for-profit space. Kuhn will discuss advantages of non-profit structure and how non-profits facilitate neutral territory. Kuhn will also present options for projects that seek to operate officially as a non-profit org.
