First Asian Legal Network Conference - 18th March - Singapore

The Asian Legal Network has connected professionals in China, Japan, Korea, India and beyond for eight years. This year, in partnership with the Linux Foundation and FOSSASIA, we plan to hold our first conference. This one-day event will see regional and international experts coming together to share and benchmark best practices. Substantive topics of discussion include: export control, patents, employment, open source and other issues facing legal counsels, intellectual property professionals and open source program offices. Access to current thinking on legal issues patent risk mitigation,etc.

The event will feature a keynote from a leading figure in our field followed by 5 moderated panels. You will be able to meet key open source figures and you will be at the center of a high level discussion that will determine how open source grows in 2020 and beyond.

We are seeking more than an audience. The event will primarily consist of panels, each designed to cover important topics in our field, and we would like you to consider sharing your thoughts. Our ideal event sees a small audience actively participating in a day of dialogue, professional-to-professional, under the Chatham House Rule to allow everyone to express their thoughts freely without concern.

Here is a taste of the type of panels we will host:
(1) Export Control, Sanctions & Trade Compliance: Practical Tips and Pitfalls
(2) Compliance Processes and Workflows: How Does Your Company Do It?
(3) Open Source and Standards
(4) Launching a Successful Open Source Project: Key Considerations
(5) Patents, Employment and Competition Issues in Open Source
(6) Emerging Issues in OSS

Interested? Please let me know as soon as possible. We have the opportunity to help redefine the discourse around open source legal matters in the Asian region.

 

Dear all

Thank you for the tremendous response and expression of interest in this event. Sadly, due to the fast moving developments around the current coronavirus threat, we need to postpone the event to fall 2020. This is based on an abundance of caution and to ensure all of our friends, colleagues and wider community will be able to freely participate, particularly from areas with travel restrictions. The most important thing, as always, is health.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the event once the schedule is reset. Until then, please be safe and be well.

Regards

Shane
