Techrights, part of Bytes Media, is a progressive site which supports software freedom and advocates digital diversity through standardisation (naturally, it is against monopoly). The different sections address multiple areas or companies, e.g. Novell which can be found further down on this page. One way to organise tens of thousands of pages is this archive, but another way is as follows.
Filing for Justice
Free Software Advocacy
Elimination/Limitation of Software Monopolies
