Standarde Deschise

Standardele deschise permit oamenilor să împartă toate tipurile de date liber şi cu o fidelitate perfectă. Ele permit blocarea şi alte bariere artificiale spre interoperabilitate şi promovează alegerea între vânzători şi soluţiile tehnologice. Obiectivul FSFE în ceea ce priveşte standardele deschise este de a asigura că oamenii pot migra într-un mod uşor spre software liber sau între soluţii libere.

Introducere

Relevanţa standardelor deschise este strâns legată de efectele de reţea, crescând dramatic. Recompensa pentru jocul cu sistemul pentru vendorii proprietari s-a incrementat, fiind costul utilizatorilor de software.

Guvernele, organizaţiile pentru binele public, incluzând grupuri care sunt procupate de libertate şi competiţie, precum şi drepturile consumatorului sunt în general proponenţi convinşi ai standardelor deschise. criticii tipici sunt vânzătorii de software, cei care reprezintă propriile interese. Unul dintre subiectele pe care criticii le conturează este conflictul între inovaţie şi standardizare.

Standardizarea limitează, fară dar şi poate, schimbările în baza technologică, incluzând inovaţia. Aceste limite sunt introduse pentru a permite subsecvent inovaţia din partea fiecăruia care are acces la standarde ci doar părţilor care controlează baza tehnologică.

Obiectivele FSFE includ libertatea tuturor pentru inovaţie şi competiţie. De aceea, FSFE este un suporter convins a Standardelor Deschise.

The FSFE has prepared its comments for the draft of the revised guidelines.

EU jeopardises its own goals in standardisation with FRAND licensing

On 19 April, the European Commission published a communication on "ICT Standardisation Priorities for the Digital Single Market" (hereinafter 'the Communication'). The Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy intends to digitise industries with several legislative and political initiatives, and the Communication is a part of it covering standardisation. In general, the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) welcomes the Communication's plausible approach for integrating Free Software and Open Standards into standardisation but expresses its concerns about the lack of understanding of necessary prerequisites to pursue that direction.
