Just a reminder that OSS Chicago is tonight and the topic is OSS Licensing.

Open Source Licensing
Presenter: Ira Kalina

This presentation will focus on the distinctions between licensing software under open 
source licenses versus proprietary models. We will discuss the critical aspects of the 
most common types of open source licenses and how these differences may impact your use, 
and your audience?s use, of the software. We will also focus on why and how you should 
consider auditing and managing your use of third party open source applications.

Ira Kalina is partner in the Chicago office of Gardner, Carton & Douglas, counseling 
clients with respect to all aspects of information technology, from software licenses, 
network services and equipment leasing through system implementation, content 
development and broad-based outsourcing arrangements. Mr. Kalina represents clients from 
a diverse array of industries, including financial services, health care, entertainment, 
education, hospitality and travel, and traditional manufacturing. Prior to rejoining 
Gardner, Mr. Kalina has served as Vice President of Business Development and General 
Counsel of a Chicago based Internet start-up, and Licensing Counsel to WMS Gaming Inc., 
a leading manufacturer of video slot machines, and Midway Games Inc., a leading 
developer of home video games.
