Attendees will learn about Red Hat’s latest moves in the industry and discuss what’s coming next in virtualization, service oriented architecture, data services and security. This forum will provide an opportunity to receive advice from partners and colleagues, including the United States Marine Corps, on how to build solutions based on open source.

Red Hat is the presenting sponsor of the 2008 North Carolina Law Review Symposium to be held Oct. 24, 2008 at the UNC School of Law in Chapel Hill, NC. The Symposium will showcase the remarkable diversity of recent quantitative research on the patent system, and the potential for even broader and deeper interdisciplinary engagement on questions of innovation law and policy. Nationally recognized scholars in law, business and economics will be joined by leading research scientists who have brought distinctive data sets, analytical methodologies, and stakeholder perspectives to their own examinations of the patent system. Red Hat’s sponsorship of this Symposium underscores its continuing commitment to reform of the patent system and support of open source innovation.
