This is the latest installment of our Licensing and Compliance Lab's series on free software developers who choose GNU licenses for their works.
GitHub's updated terms caused a great deal of concern, but while they are confusing, they do not appear to be incompatible with copyleft. The Free Software Foundation (FSF), though, still recommends using other code hosting sites.
It's almost time: LibrePlanet 2017 kicks off in two weeks, on March 25! Will you join free software hackers, lawyers, activists, students, educators, librarians, and community organizers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to explore the roots of software freedom?
Join the FSF and friends Friday, March 10th, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST (17:00 to 20:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with the theme this week of adding new packages.
The world of free software projects and the greater free software movement grow in success and visibility in no small part thanks to the developmental model that is enabled by the licenses and philosophies that drive free software. Many projects and the Free Software Foundation (FSF) itself have made leaps in creating more diverse and inclusive spaces over the past few years. I'm excited to celebrate International Women's Day by writing just a few of the many amazing women around the world who use their professional and personal time to drive freedom in technology.
Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at the last Free Software Directory meeting.
