Software Licensing and Open Source Training

DVD cover
We sell a training video featuring Dan Bricklin. Titled "A Developer's Introduction to Copyright and Open Source: Why a Lawyer is a Developer's Friend", it introduces developers to the basics of copyright law and how it applies to software licensing, including Open Source Software. It helps developers join with the corporate legal department to make sure that together they do "the right thing".

See the Training Video product page.
Podcast Mike Illustration
We have a podcast called "Dan Bricklin's Software Licensing Podcast". It includes interviews and other material that should be of interest to lawyers, developers, and business people who need to learn more about topics relating to software licensing and Open Source from others in the field at a deep, practical level. While the video is targeted at a viewing audience that needs to learn the basics of the topic, the podcast is aimed at those who are already knowledgeable in the area.

See the Podcasts page for more information.
