Who: A Group of People from Software Freedom Law Center
What: Legal Primer for FOSS
Where: On the Internet
The Gist: The chapter describes various organizational structures but barely touches on how they work, and does not mention why to use one organiztional strcture over another.
- mentioned many different organizational structures
- discusses companies to help in making your organization
- discusses incorperation
- mentioned thier own place of work, kinda lame
- no reasons to use certain organizational structures
- hard for a student who hasn't worked at many businesses to understand
- How different are these ideas of incorporation in other nations?
- How different is this process per state?
- From reading this, a lawyer seems like a good idea, but what about an accountant?
Review: This is a dated start to building an organization for open source software. It gives individuals thinking about starting an organization places to start, but all the data has become irrelevant.
