Licensing within the imageJ environment

Abstract:
This presentation will focus on introducing the audience to the issues of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) licensing. After a brief introduction to the nature of a license, the impact of national laws, and the underlying rights and obligations both from a licensor but also licensee point of view, the case of ImageJ will be apprehended.
Destinated to an audience of developers, the main purpose of this presentation is less to give a legal course than to try and diffuse good practices for original and derivative work management from a licensing standpoint. As much as possible, practical examples will be used, incoming from ImageJ or the most important associated plug-ins.

Keywords:
ImageJ, licenses, intellectual property usage
