Software licenses that give people freedom are facing scrutiny from a variety of interests and organizations. This session seeks to articulate the core values of software freedom: how the tenets of FSF's Four Freedoms and the Open Source Definition's criteria enable networks of collaboration and co-creation. Current issues from a variety of interested parties are considered, not on their value as a movement, but rather their impact on the freedoms to run, study, modify, and redistribute works. Alternative approaches to licensing that can address concerns of communities will also be offered.
