Past Campaigns

by libby Contributions Published on Jan 08, 2013 10:56 AM
The FSF has spent decades advocating for free software and free software principles in many arenas. Take a look at some of our past campaigns to learn more about our work.

Campaign against the ACTA

The FSF has opposed the ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) because it is a threat to the distribution and development of free software, and we campaign against this and other international agreements that undermine people's right to control technology. Learn more about our campaign against the ACTA. Because negotiations on ACTA have stopped, this campaign is on hold.

The FSF is currently fighting a new trade agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Lobbyists and officials from twelve countries, including the US, are currently bickering over the details of this massive international "free trade" treaty. They are creating the TPP to strongly promote Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) and enforce draconian copyright law, which will hinder free software development.

Windows 7 Sins

Microsoft Windows has hundreds of millions of people locked-in to proprietary software. It exemplifies some of proprietary software's most serious problems, like security and privacy. Windows 7 Sins makes the case against Microsoft and proprietary software, in response to the latest release of Microsoft Windows. Find out more about Windows 7 Sins.

The FSF is currently urging people to upgrade to free software from Windows 8. Get involved with our current campaign at:


RIAA Expert Witness Fund

In conjunction with Recording Industry vs. The People, the FSF has established a fund to help provide computer expert witnesses to combat the RIAA's ongoing lawsuits against households that share music, and to defend against the RIAA's attempt to redefine copyright law. Read more about why the FSF is involved.

The BadVista campaign is an advocate for the freedom of computer users, opposing adoption of Microsoft Windows Vista and promoting free (as in freedom) software alternatives.

Our campaigns are successful because of supporters like you. Please visit our current campaigns page to learn how you can help us advocate for software freedom today.
