Ethics of Free, Libre, and Open Source Software: Free Software or Proprietary Software? Intellectual Property and Freedom

Deadline: November 30, 2006

Ethics of Free, Libre, and Open Source Software: Free Software or Proprietary Software? Intellectual Property and Freedom

Deadline for Submissions: Nov. 30, 2006

Description of the Event:

To compliment our special issue on patents and intellectual property (EP 13 (2006) 2), /Ethical Perspectives/ is planning a special issue (EP 14 (2007) 2) on the ethics of free / libre / open source software (FLOSS).

Discussions of Richard Stallman’s work on free software are particularly welcome. We wish to give researchers in this field the chance to publish original and important contributions to such questions as:

  • What are the ethical implications of proprietary software?
  • Is free software strictly a deontological approach?
  • What effect do FLOSS applications have on developing nations, and on development work in general?
  • Does creativity require traditional market rewards?
  • What ethical questions arise in case studies of free software?

Technical discussions are invited in the expectation that they be framed within the framework of applied ethics, and specifically, within the framework of freedom, broadly construed.

Deadline: November 30, 2006

Please email papers, preferably in OpenDocument format (ODT) to ethical@oce.kuleuven.be

Any questions or comments are also welcome at that address.

Please see our "Information for Authors" (also available on the back inside page of any issue of /Ethical Perspectives/).
