Short Summary

I plan to write a book that discusses legal aspects relating to Open Source Software.

Although we use OSS every day for mobile phones, laptops, personal computers, etc., we remain uninformed about any legal features that relate to the product. This is an important subject for me as a lawyer, and for you as user of OSS.

I also aim to write this book because the topic of OSS is relatively new in the Arab world. Your help is crucial to enable success with this project. Publishing this book will enrich the open source culture and help contribute towards promotion of a book written in Arabic.

What We Need & What You Get

The money collected is for:

·  Purchase of books related to the topic (500 Dollars)

·  Visits to libraries and to carry out research (500 Dollars)

·  Publish the book (e-book and paper book) (4000 Dollars)

·  Marketing (2000 Dollars),

The money will help me by enabling me to have time to work on the project and to publish the book.Thank you for your contribution!

The Impact

This area of work is very interesting. My interest in this subject came from my interest in new legal aspects that concern Internet usage and because there aren’t many books written in Arabic. This gave me the idea to write this book because it's important to me and to future generations to do research in this field. 

Other Ways You Can Help

I appreciate all the work you are doing to help with this project, whether through financial contribution or promotion through social media or any other means you think useful.

Thank you for your continued support.
