Abstract: In the last few years there have been a few instances of open source developers using their copyrights for frivolous legal action against companies (see for example https://lwn.net/Articles/721458/ ). In this talk I will dive into the backgrounds of recent enforcement cases and discuss solutions to these and possible future threats.
