Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - Bisherige Regierungsparteien mit offensichtlichen Berührungsängsten bei Freier Software

23 August 2016:

Die Free Software Foundation Europe veröffentlicht heute als Teil der "Koalition Freies Wissen die Wahlprüfsteine für die Wahl zum Landtag von Mecklenburg-Vorpommern am 04. September 2016. Die Parteien konnten Stellung nehmen zur Forderung, öffentlich finanzierte Software als Freie Software zu veröffentlichen, sowie zu ihrer Bereitschaft, Freie Software an Bildungseinrichtungen verstärkt einzusetzen. Die Grünen sind Freier Software gegenüber positiv aufgeschlossen und machen Vorschläge zur Umsetzung. Die Linken haben die Bedeutung „Freier Software“ als solche erkannt -- auch wenn konkrete Vorschläge zur Umsetzung fehlen. SPD und CDU haben dagegen inhaltlich starken Nachholbedarf.

Compulsory Routers: what customers have to take care of now

25 July 2016:

Up until now, Internet service providers (ISPs) in Germany determined the router users had to use to connect to the Internet. The user had no say in this decision. This changes on August 1. A new law will allow users choose the device that gets installed in their homes. The FSFE wants to ensure everybody knows about their new rights and is asking users to report cases in which ISPs try to avoid the new regulation.
