Digital services offered and used by public
administrations are the critical infrastructure of 21st-century
democratic nations. To establish trustworthy systems, government
agencies must ensure they have full control over systems at the core
of our digital infrastructure. This is rarely the case today due to
restrictive software licences.

Our world is constantly changing, as are people's thoughts and perceptions. Since its founding in 2001, individuals engaged in the FSFE, from coordinators and volunteers to full-time employees, have come to develop their understanding of what FSFE is and what our shared values are. Sometimes the views expressed by individuals have been similar to one another, sometimes they have diverged.

As part of this initiative, today we release our White Paper which
highlights the ways in which the proposed Article 13 could unintentionally
harm the communities and the businesses built around Free Software.
