Richard Fontana

My name is Richard Fontana. Currently I am something of a leech as far as contributing to the Fedora Project is concerned, but I do help out in the course of performing my day job as Open Source Licensing and Patent Counsel at Red Hat.

I was a Red Hat Linux user for many years, beginning sometime in 1997. I didn't really begin using Fedora until I started working at Red Hat in early 2008. I've used Fedora nearly exclusively since then for laptop/desktop use.

Prior to joining Red Hat in 2008, I worked as Counsel at the Software Freedom Law Center, where I worked on various legal matters for nonprofit free software and open source projects and organizations, the best know of which was my work on GPLv3 for the FSF.
