It looks like people are big fans of the GNU with harp logo. I think we
might want to get an official okay from FSF / FSFE / the GNU project
that we can use the GNU image in this way. Ciaran, you have personal
contact with some of those folks. Perhaps you could ask them?

I will go along to this.

I'll be able to go. We should prepare some material on the work we've
been doing. The two main strands are Copyright and Patents. I did some
work on the copyright law, so I'll try to put together a summary of what
went on there. Can someone else volunteer to write up our patent work?
I can do that too, but I haven't been as involved recently. We might
also want to have some notes on the Enforcement directive about which I
know nothing.

Can someone tackle this? I don't know much about the BSD and Creative
Commons license.

If I get some positive replies to this e-mail, I'll get in touch with
Checkov and confirm we'll do the workshop.
