Reuse of Free Software

The FSFE is running a project to develop and raise awareness of best practices for the expression of license and copyright information in free and open source projects. The project is intended to facilitate management of source code by making licensing and copyright information more consistent in how it is added to source code in ways which allow for automating many of the processes involved.

Launched by the Fellowship of FSFE, is a site providing information about PDF with links to Free Software PDF readers for all major operating systems

Open Standards

Lock-in of data is one of the most common techniques to artificially raise the cost of migration to Free Software. Ensuring the best possible interoperability through Open Standards is essential in enabling users to escape vendor lock-in. FSFE's work on Open Standards has the goal of making sure that people do not have to lose all their data when migrating to Free Software.

A second directive on the enforcement of "intellectual property rights" has been proposed by the European Commission. It aims to criminalise all "intentional, commercial-scale" infringements, and to allow rights-holders to take part investigations. FSFE will be pointing out to the EU institutions how such laws encourage abuse of the legal system and have chilling effects on law-abiding activities.

Microsoft versus European Union citizens

In 2001 the European Union, through the DG Competition of the European Commission (lead by Mr. Mario Monti), started investigating Microsoft's dominant position in the market for desktop operating systems. The Free Software Foundation Europe was invited by the European Commission to represent the interests of the Free Software movement. Since 2004, FSFE is participating in the appeal to again defend competition and freedom of choice against abuses.

Patents de programari a Europa

Les patents de programari per a Europa s'estan intentant introduir activament per un lobby al voltant de l'oficina europea de patents i la Business Software Alliance (BSA), que representen els interessos de les grans empreses dels EUA. Les patents de programari són una amenaça per a la societat i l'economia i l'FSFE està involucrada activament en la resistència contra aquests plans.


L'objectiu del projecte d'ensenyament és l'avanç del Programari Lliure en totes les activitats relatives a l'ensenyament i les institucions, com les guarderies, les escoles, els instituts i les universitats. El Programari Lliure és la millor opció per a totes les activitats basades en l'ensenyament, ja que promulga l'ensenyament de l'enteniment per sobre de l'ensenyament de productes i defensa el principi científic.
