| My name is Shane Coughlan and and I work for Free Software Foundation Europe
| (FSFE), a non-profit, non-governmental organisation with offices in Germany,
| Switzerland, Belgium and Sweden. You may remember me from my last FSFE update
| on this blog on the Freedom Task Force, which is the FSFE's legal training
| project which I coordinate. Google's Open Source Team invited me to send an
| update about some of the cool stuff we are doing, so I'd like to start by
| giving you a little background about who we are and what we do.

[FSFE PR][EN] FSFE to make legal consolidation tool available in 10 languages

,----[ Quote ]
| The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) announced today that it plans
| to make the Fiduciary License Agreement (FLA) available ten languages.
| The selected languages are English, German, French, Italian, Swedish,
| Serbian, Polish, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese.
| The FLA assists projects with re-licensing and license enforcement by
| consolidating copyright into a single organization, and is effective in
| jurisdictions based on both civil law and common law. It also transfers
| a full set of rights back to the author, ensuring that both parties
| maintain the maximum freedom possible. The translation of the FLA will
| help provide the benefits of copyright consolidation to local projects
| across Europe.
