Dear Friends and Colleagues:


For several years now PLI has arranged a continuing education program for
attorneys about "Open Source and Free Software: Benefits, Risks and
Challenges". This year's program will be held in New York City on November
14, 2012 (led by Lori Lesser and Stuart Levi), and in San Francisco and via
Live Webcast on December 5, 2012 (led by Lawrence Rosen). 


For both programs we have arranged for distinguished and experienced
industry professionals to participate. The day-long program, for which
attorneys can earn continuing education credits (including ethics credit),
includes the following topics:


.                     Setting the Stage: An Introduction to "FOSS" and
Copyright Concepts

.                     Open Source Software and its Licenses

.                     License Enforcement and Avoiding Litigation
