Shane Coughlan hosted a Continuing Legal Education seminar for lawyers on the California bar on behalf of the Japan Law Society on the 18th of June.  This seminar was located at the Yodoyabashi & Yamagami offices in Osaka and broadcast live via videolink to audience members at the Kao Corporation in Tokyo.

Shane discussed FOSS licensing and practical market engagement.  His talk focused on using copyright to regulate the distribution of creative work, and what ramifications FOSS has for other aspects of a traditional IPR portfolio such as patents and trademarks.
