Under the umbrella of the European Legal Network, the world's largest community of lawyers and licensing specialists in the field of free and open source software, the first issue of the International Free and Open Source Law Review (IFOSSLR) was released today. IFOSSLR is a peer reviewed biannual journal for high-level analysis and debate about Free and Open Source Software legal issues and is published by an independent Editorial Committee. IFOSSLR is provided free in electronic form. Paper copies of IFOSSLR may ordered.
Included in the first issue is an article by New York Law School students Chris Wong and Jason Kreps discussion the relationship between Peer-to-Patent and the open source movement. Chris Wong, a recent graduate of New York Law School, has served as the project manager for Peer-to-Patent since its launch in June 2007, and Jason Kreps has been a member of the project team during the last year while he continues his legal studies.
