French presidential elections 2012 and free software

by Matt Lee Contributions Published on Apr 24, 2012 10:46 AM
The French free software advocacy group April asked all of the candidates in the upcoming French presidential elections about their positions on free software, software patents, DRM and more.

At the moment, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, le Front de Gauche for Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Eva Joly and François Bayrou have answered (in French). Fleur Pellerin, in charge of François Hollande's digital economy program has sent in her answers. April is still waiting for answers from Nicolas Sarkozy and Jean-Marie le Pen, although they both answered in 2007.

A full press release is available in English and responses from the various candidates are available in French.
