Software curation/preservation is a growing field of practice, with organizations and initiatives that are emerging to form an ecosystem. One key feature of organizational ecosystems is that human actors can develop norms, values, and intentional networks to regulate competition for the greater good -- in our case, the preservation of software. Through moderated, roundtable discussion this panel will explore the following: Where do law and information policy intersect with evolving software curation practice? What current advocacy activities are taking place to support software curation, not only in the U.S., but the global community of software curation practitioners? What are the challenges facing software curation practitioners in terms of changing local organizational policy to encompass sharing and reuse of software between organizations? How do we build capacity to do software curation within organizations? What are the long-term maintenance and sustainability implications of community-owned infrastructure that enables long-term access to software?
