For this month's software freedom podcast I talked with Till Jaeger. He has been involved with Free Software legal and licensing topics for over two decades. In this episode Till talks about the history and the beginning of enforcing Free Software licences in Germany. Till has worked alongside Harald Welte enforcing the GNU GPL in the first court cases in Germany.
We talk about how Till got involved in Free Software, highlight the short and long term impacts of the first court decisions, about some of the most common misunderstandings of Free Software licensing, as well as the role of the FSFE's legal network in fostering the discussion and knowledge for Free Software legal and licensing topics. I highly appreciate Till for being able to explain complex legal topics, so non-lawyers can understand them.
