Video: Neelie Kroes Praises Software Freedom (as Ogg)

Posted in Europe, Free/Libre Software, Patents, Videos at 4:41 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: New video from GUADEC2010


Direct link

The president of the FFII points out that Neelie Kroes says about open source: “What if we are sued if we infringe someone else IP if we use this?”

Given Kroes’ past when it comes to patents, it’s no shocking U-turn and the video above is good news by most judgments. There are also good things happening in the UK government at the moment. More on that soon.

Microposts

Posted in Site News at 4:26 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: New experimental site format

I’ve just returned from London where major developments occurred around the NHS (Microsoft contracting breaking apart). More details later this week…
