[FSFE PR][EN] FSFE for Freedom Not Fear

,----[ Quote ]
| The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) supports Free Software so that
| every citizen can play an independent, active and responsible part in our
| information society. However, censorship of content, violations of the
| principle of 'Net Neutrality' and increasing online surveillance do not fit
| with these goals. FSFE is therefore appealing for participation in the
| world-wide day of action "Freedom Not Fear" [1], which takes place this
| Saturday, the 11th October.


Open Source vs. Proprietary Intranet Software, Part 3

,----[ Quote ]
| An organization's choice of either an open source or proprietary intranet
| software solution must be based on its own specific needs and resources --
| not on what others are doing or saying. What worked for one company might not
| necessarily work for yours -- IT infrastructures are different, employees'
| technical skill levels are different, and budgets are different. You should
| never base your decision on the success or failure of another company's
| experiences.



[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.
