I am pleased to announce that the Legal Issues devroom will be
reprised for FOSDEM 2013 and the Call for Participation is now open!

This Legal and Policy issues devroom is designed to cover topics
of Free Software licensing and legal policy. While proposals for
introductory topics in this area are welcome, we are specifically
seeking proposals on advanced topics in Free Software policy,
licensing, trademark, patent and other legal topics.

The goal for this devroom is to foster in-depth discussion
about complex policy, legal and licensing issues that face the
software freedom community today.

For more information (including slides and recordings from
last year's devroom) check out our sites [0][1] and respond
to the CFP [2] by 21 December 2012. If you have questions
and/or would like to discuss this devroom please followup
on our mailing list [3] and/or on IRC [4].

See you in Brussels!
