Budapest: Use of FLA outside of the Free Software Communities?

Next week, I will be having presentation "Use of FLA outside of the Free Software Communities?" at workshop "V 4 paradigm shift in copyright" in Budapest (see details). The talk will discuss following:
The copyright law sometimes gives authors more rights than they actually want. Certain communities overcome this problem by developing standard legal documents (usually contracts), which greatly help them in adjusting the copyright to their needs. One of such examples is the Fiduciary License Agreement developed by the FSFE. FLA is not only a great tool inside the Free Software community, but could be potentially of an inspiration also for the other artistic communities. We need however more experiments in this area.
I will be happy to meet there any of my "V4" readers who will to be in Hungarian capital at that time.
