I would definitely be interested in participating in Licensing
Workshops.  Last year I attended a Software Licensing and Internet
Agreements seminar in Philadelphia. The one-day workshop was presented
by Sequoia Professional Development Corporation.  The seminar was taught
by Tobey B. Marzouk and Thomas M. Parry, attorneys in the Washington,
D.C. law firm of Marzouk & Parry.  These gentlemen are experts in
technology, Internet and software law and litigation.  The problem I had
with this seminar was that it was really geared towards lawyers.  It was
also pretty expensive at $595 per person.  Eighty percent (80%) of the
attendees were attorneys who earned continuing education credits for the
workshop.  I would like to see a seminar that addresses the specific
concerns that pertain to college and university software licensing.
Maybe a Software Licensing for Dummies would work.
