Avec la campagne Public Money? Public Code! de la FSFE nous ne demandons pas seulement que le code financé par le peuple soit disponible pour le peuple. Nous voulons également mettre en lumière de bon exemples pour que ceux qui prennent les décisions en tire des leçons. Un très bon exemple est l' Article 68 et l' Article 69 de la "Codice Amministrazione Digitale", une loi italienne qui impose aux administrations publiques en Italie de préférer les solutions développées en interne et les solutions utilisant le Logiciel Libre aux logiciels propriétaires. De plus, ces administrations ont le devoir de partager le code source et la documentation des logiciels conçus avec de l'argent publique; Ces lois placent l'Italie à l'avant garde de la législation européenne en matière de code public.
