Karen M. Sandler
Let's face it, GNU/Linux is no youngster! Many developers are aging and as with
any large group of people, we must plan for the sad but inevitable loss of
contributors. We have already lost a number of extremely important people in our
community. In this talk, Karen will discuss the legal and social implications of
this transition, like:

* What will happen to my copyrights when I die? * What if I don't have a will? * What if I do? * What are my options?
* What are the challenges my free software project will face as contributors die?
* How do we keep track of everything as time passes?

After many years of struggling with the legal solutions to these problems, Karen
will propose possible mechanisms we can put in place (with suprising ancillary
advantages) and discuss pragmatic next stesp.
