ES: La Alianza Empresarial de Software (BSA) Cabildea (y miente) Para Excluir el Software Libre en el Sector Público Británico

Resumen: El grupo de cabeza de Microsoft, la nefasta Alianza Empresarial de Software BSA, se apoya en el gobierno británico para revertir las políticas que favorecen la libertad del software a través de estándares abiertos.

LA BSA[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Business_Software_Alliance] ataca de nuevo. Mark Taylor escribe: “Al parecer, la BSA han comenzado a quejarse de la nueva política de la Oficina del Gabinete en estándares abiertos … ahora hay una gran sorpresa” (no!).

Bueno, él escribió en Twitter de todos modos (la revelación: Yo trabajo para Sirius, su compañía). Glyn Moody encontrado este artículo de acompañamiento[http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/intellectual-property/2011/03/01/bsa-open-standards-will-increase-e-government-costs-40091981/] sobre este tema, señalando: “gran bofetada de FUD (Miedo Incertidumbre y Duda) de la irreflexiva BSA” (y por debajo de algunas citas de expansión para futuras referencias).

A los departamentos gubernamentales se les dijo en una nota de la política de la Oficina del Gabinete (PDF) con fecha 31 de enero que “debe siempre que sea posible implementar los estándares abiertos en las especificaciones de sus contratos”. En su nota, que define los estándares abiertos en los que están “a disposición del público en cero o de bajo costo” y que “han hecho de manera irrevocable la propiedad intelectual disponible en una base sin derechos de autor”.

El martes, la Business Software Alliance (BSA) arremetió contra la política, que pone a las empresas de software con normas propietarias en desventaja.


Sin embargo, los defensores del código abierto, tales como la Free Software Foundation Europa (FSFE) se quejaron de que el EIFv2, en comparación con la primera versión, mostró que la Comisión había abandonado la idea de ordenar los estándares abiertos como un “elemento clave para la interoperabilidad”.

Mark Taylor, director ejecutivo de los sistemas de código abierto Sirio integración empresa, dijo que la respuesta de la BSA a la nota política del gobierno era “basura” y “absolutamente previsible”.

“Una gran cantidad de tiempo y esfuerzo dedicado por los intereses particulares de grupos de presión en Bruselas,” dijo Taylor a ZDNet Reino Unido. “EIFv2 fue definitivamente un paso atrás en EIFv1″.

La BSA dice que la EIFv2 creado una “igualdad de condiciones” para todos los tipos de software, incluidos los de código abierto, para competir en la prestación del sector público con las soluciones interoperables. Según Taylor, esta declaración es “no es verdad” y la nueva recomendación europea es “discriminatoria en contra de código abierto”.

“Afortunadamente, el gobierno del Reino Unido es uno de los gobiernos que habían identificado eso”, dijo Taylor. “Si EIFv2 no había sido un paso atrás, no habría necesidad de que gobiernos como el gobierno del Reino Unido a salir con estas políticas.”

Über-abogado Carlo Piana comillas: “BSA apoya los estándares abiertos, si estamos de acuerdo en lo” abierto “significa …”

En respuesta, escribe Piana, “por ejemplo, h.264 sí, WebM ¿no? es decir, una farsa!”

La BSA es tratar de caracterizar lo propietario y el monopolio como “abierto” y “elección”. Es la misma que mentira Microsoft utiliza continuamente.

DecorWhat Else is New

  1. 38+ Years of GNU and 19+ Years of FSF Associate Membership

    “On November 25, 2002,” Wikipedia notes, “the FSF launched the FSF Associate Membership program for individuals.” As the above video points out, it all started almost 40 years ago.

  2. Gemini as a Platform for Gamers

    Contrary to what people often assume (or are led to assume), even without client-side scripting Gemini can accomplish a great deal; early adopters, many of whom are technical, test the limits of the very minimalistic (by design and intention) specification

  3. Improved Workflows: Achievement Unlocked

    Today we've completed a bunch of small projects that can make us more efficient (e.g. more Daily Links per day, more articles); the above video was recorded many hours ago to accompany the outline below

  4. Links 26/11/2021: New Complaint About Microsoft Competition Crimes in Europe, EuroLinux 8.5, GhostBSD 21.11.24, and Kiwi TCMS 10.5 Released

    Links for the day

  9. IBM as Master of Hypocrisy

    Free software projects and Free software developers have long been humiliated by corporations of Western misogynists, falsely claiming that the Free software community isn’t inclusive enough (these are shameless projection tactics; as a matter of public record, the exact opposite is true) and even the eradication of supposedly offensive language isn’t something IBM takes seriously

  10. Links 25/11/2021: LibreOffice 7.2.3 and Mesa 21.2.6 Released

    Links for the day

  11. [Meme] So Desperate That Edge Cannot Even Exceed 4% That They Block Rival Web Browsers

    Linux/Android/Free Software/GNU (they go by very many names/brands) may continue to grow to the point where Windows is as irrelevant as Blackberry; this means that Microsoft’s grip on the Web too has slipped — to the point where Microsoft frantically uses 'bailout' money to hijack LinkedIn, GitHub, etc. (it also rebrands almost everything as "Azure" or clown to fake a perception of growth)

  12. Windows Vista Service Pack 11 (Vista 11) Has Failed to Curb the Growth of GNU/Linux

    Windows market share continues to decrease in spite of billions of dollars spent bribing the media for fake hype, especially in light of a new Windows Service Pack (SP), Vista SP 11

  13. Links 25/11/2021: Proton 6.3-8 and Linux Mint Compared to Ubuntu

    Links for the day

  14. 3.5 Years Later the 'Master' of Fedora is Still Microsoft and IBM Cannot Be Bothered to Alter Git Branch Names (Refuting or Ignoring Its Very Own Directive About Supposedly Racially-Insensitive Terms)

    Today we demonstrate the hypocrisy of IBM; years after telling us that we should shun the term "master" and repeatedly insisting it had a racist connotation at least 65 Fedora repositories, still controlled by Microsoft, still use "master"

  15. Changing the Arrangement While News is a Bit Slow(er)

    I've made it easier for myself to keep abreast of things like IRC channels and networks (incidentally, a day ago Freenode reopened to anonymous logins) and I've improved monitoring of the Web sites, Gemini capsule etc. (this video is unplanned and improvised)

  16. Links 24/11/2021: Alpine Linux 3.15 and Endless OS 4.0 Released

  17. [Meme] Jimmy Zemlin Loves Microsoft

    It’s funny, isn’t it? Lying for a living and sucking up to the liars pays off; you get to plunder actual Linux users while leaving Linux morally and financially bankrupt

  22. In Light of Fast-Accelerating Deterioration -- Sometimes Weaponisation -- Getting Off the World Wide Web (to the Extent Feasible) Makes You Saner and Less Susceptible to Manipulation, Lies

    Almost no sites are speaking about it (probably because they have no presence on the Internet except on the Web), but it's time to motivate more people to get off the Web, for their own good and for society's sake...

  23. Black Friday SPAM on the World Wide Web: A Reminder That the Web is a Dying Platform, Languishing Due to Marketing and Misinformation

    The junk that overruns the Web this 'Black Friday' week (consumerism 'on steroids') is a good reminder that the Web isn't healthy for the mind anymore; it's mostly spying on people, trying to compel them to buy particular things or vote a certain way

  24. Microsoft-Led Misinformation Campaign About Germany and Munich Reminds Us That Microsoft Hates and Actively Undermines GNU/Linux Adoption

    Regarding the latest moves to GNU/Linux in Germany we have 3 points to make

  28. Microsoft's GitHub is Hugely Toxic and It Censors Critics of Corporations or People Sceptical of Those in Power

    Sociopaths have taken over GitHub and control over GitHub (by Microsoft) is being shamelessly misused, just as we’ve warned all along; GitHub is social control media/network for code, asserting control over projects and developers by means of censorship and other sanctions

  29. EPO Staff Engagement Survey Predates the Pandemic and Provides False Assumptions for EPO Policies or Policy-Setting

    The EPO ticks a box for "surveying the staff", but is it actually listening? Is that done often enough? It was last done almost 3 years ago...
