[linux-elitists] Announcement: FSL-discuss list created

As a followup to a free software law summit hosted by Bruce Perens of HP
September, 2001, a mailing list to address issues of free software
legal issues has been created, email@example.com.
This list satisfies an unmet need within the free software community.
While there are discussions oriented toward specific legal issues such
as the OSI's license-discuss submissions review list, Free-Sklyarov list
and DVD-discuss, and there are general discussions for free software
and free software business, there is no discussion that focusses on
general legal aspects of free software.
So we've created fsl-discuss.
The list charter is: Legal issues concerning free software.
This includes: licensing (in a general sense, specific issues of, say,
OSI certification should be directed to the OSI license-discuss list),
patent, trademark, legislation, standards, international treaties, and
other aspects of law. The list is intended for general discussion.
For further information, to subscribe, or to view archives, see:
List moderator and hosts are Karsten M. Self and Drew Streib.
Karsten is a long-time active member of the free software and GNU/Linux
communities, who's been involved in numerous discussions, panels,
publications, and presentations of legal issues.
Drew is a cofounder of SourceForge.net, a member of the Free Standards
Group (http://www.freestandards.org/), Linux International, and other
organizations and activities.
Thanks to Drew for providing hosting services for FSL-Discuss.
