Session Abstract

Free, open source software is mainly founded on legal tools, like copyright, licenses. From a lawyer's perspective, that means "compliance". But I want to extend the concept of compliance, by outlining that complying with the rules means *respect* for other people's work and interest. With the paradigm shifting, with more and more workloads happening on the cloud, this is all the more a crucial point, needing respect, besides compliance.
