Free talk on Management of Open Source Software and Third Party Intellectual Property by Sean Egan, CTO, CM-Logic at the British Computer Society's offices, Tues 25 Jan 2011, London 1800-2100.

You have to register but it seems to be open to all.

From the blurb it's mainly about managing the risks of incorporating open source code into proprietary software or reusing other code in proprietary software, which "can compromise intellectual property rights, create unknown royalty obligations, and introduce hidden security risks", as well as licensing risks of course. CM-Logic's involvement in this area is that they provide solutions to "help organisations detect, track and manage the use of mixed-origin code".
