  • Course introduction
  • Let's talk about Copyright and Open Source Licenses
    • IANAL
    • We're going to explore licensing from the POV of a developer participating in open projects
  • Copyright (Copyright in Canada video)
    • Who created it, "owns" it.
    • Set of exclusive rights granted to the work's creator
    • "The right to copy," to produce or reproduce a work or substantial portion thereof
    • Copyright is automatic when a work is created, you don't have to register it.
    • Copyright in Canada
    • Copyright Guide
    • In a software project, there can be many copyright holders (e.g., many contributors), or all contributors may assign their copyright to the project (e.g., CLA, which we'll cover later)
