Communicating freely

Thoughts on how we can all talk a little easier, and how that can make life better.

The Freedom Task Force goes live!

At the fellowship meeting in Italy we had a special announcement.  It’s time to share that announcement with everyone who couldn’t make it to the meeting themselves.

Today FSFE is launching the Freedom Task Force (FTF).  This is a project that will help solve Free Software legal issues.  The FTF will deliver three things:
License education
Fiduciary services
License enforcement

The FTF is a shield for Free Software.  We’ve assembled legal and technical experts.  We’ve entered into a long-term partnership with  We’ve begun to forge productive relationships with businesses, projects and other key players in the Free Software eco-system.

You can find out more about the FTF here.  If you want to contact us, you can do so here.  Comments, suggestions and questions are welcome, as are requests for assistance.  

This is a very cool time for our community.

    This is great news which we’ll happily announce at the forthcoming GLWE.
    Now we have a definitive answer to questions like “What are you doing to protect Free Software / projects?”

    On a second thought

    …though, this is only one piece in the fight for Free Software and Free Society. The long-term struggles in WIPO, UN and other places are as important.
