Endocode’s team is busy giving talks. On new technologies, on new developments and most importantly, on Open Source and it’s opportunities and challenges. A controverse topic that finds itself in the epicentre of many Open Source discussions is the topic of patents. And this is where Endocode’s Mirko Böhm enters the stage. Mirko is not only the CEO of Endocode, but also a director at the Open Invention Network, a shared defensive patent pool with the mission to protect Linux.
The Open Invention Network’s over 2000 member companies are cross-licensing their patents to create a zone around Linux and Open Source technologies where it is safe to innovate without worrying about patents. Mirko is spreading the word about the network, how companies and Open Source communities can join it and how it protects Open Source. His next stop is the foss-north conference in Gothenburg in beautiful Sweden.
foss-north is a single day, single track conference held on May 26. The conference is free and filled with great speakers and interesting topics, covering both software and hardware from the technical perspective. Endocode is a proud sponsor of the conference and excited to be involved.
Mirko’s talk on The Open Invention Network and protecting Open Source through patent pooling and defensive publications is scheduled right after the keynote session, from 10:00 – 10:30 am.
So if you’re in the area, make sure to stop by and get involved in all the amazing talks and sessions.
