Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - Zittende regeringspartijen zijn blijkbaar bang voor Vrije Software

23 August 2016:

De Free Software Foundation Europe maakt vandaag als deel van de "Coalitie Vrije Kennis de verkiezingstoetsstenen voor de verkiezingen voor het parlement van Mecklenburg-Vorpommern op 4 september 2016 bekend. De partijen konden stelling nemen ten aanzien van de eis om publiek gefinancierde software als Vrije Software openbaar te maken en ten aanzien van de bereidheid om Vrije Software versterkt in het onderwijs in te zetten. De Groenen staan positief ten opzichte van Vrije Software en doen voorstellen voor de omschakeling. De Linksen hebben de betekenis van „Vrije Software“ als zodanig erkent, hoewel concrete voorstellen voor de omschakeling ontbreken. SPD en CDU hebben daarentegen inhoudelijk veel in te halen.

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.

The long road from compulsory routers to freedom of choice

02 September 2015:

The router. Despite often being dusty it is one of the most important devices needed for using the internet or phones. However: Most users in Germany don’t own this device even though it is located inside their homes and they pay for it.
