Conservancy Now Offers Basic Legal Services to All its Member Projects

The Software Freedom Conservancy is pleased to announce the addition of Tony Sebro as its full-time General Counsel. Tony joins Conservancy as our second full-time staffer, and will complement the variety of pro-bono and outside legal services that Conservancy already receives from an array of talented lawyers around the world. With the addition of a General Counsel, Conservancy now offers basic legal assistance to its member projects in addition to the many services Conservancy already provides.

Tony brings to Conservancy a wealth of legal knowledge relating to copyrights and trademarks, as well as many years of non-profit volunteerism. Tony is a seasoned technology attorney with a broad base of business and legal experience relating to technology, strategy, and business development. Tony worked previously in the position of Program Director, Technology & Intellectual Property at IBM, and earlier in his career practiced law in the New York office of Kenyon & Kenyon, LLP. Tony's full bio is available.

Tony joins an already vibrant group of attorneys who have for some time provided excellent part-time and/or pro-bono legal advice and assistance to Conservancy. Olivier Hugot, of HUGOTAVOCATS, has assisted Conservancy in many GPL compliance matters in France, and now serves as Conservancy's official French Counsel. Daniel B. Ravicher, who has worked for many years with Conservancy on its GPL enforcement efforts, continues to represent Conservancy in its current GPL enforcement litigation. Karen Sandler, who (via SFLC) provided regular pro-bono services to Conservancy since its inception, continues to provide occasional pro-bono work while she focuses on her role as Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation. Brendan Scott of Open Source Law in Sydney, Australia gives Conservancy occasional pro-bono advice on copyright issues in Australia and assists in Conservancy's GPL enforcement efforts there.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
