Every organization involved with Open Source and Free Software has called for more educational resources about Free Software licensing. Historically, materials were written by a myriad of organizations, over a long period of time, and published separately. The copyleft.org project brings these materials together in one place, as part of a collaborative community project working together to create better information and documentation about GPL and other copyleft licenses, and how to properly comply with those licenses.
This talk presents an overview of the material available in the current 125-page Definitive Guide to Copyleft available from copyleft.org and explains what parts are ready to use, which ones need more work, and how you can contribute. During interactive Q&A, we can brainstorm about what areas of copyleft and compliance need the documentation most urgently.
