Working together for free software
by Free Software Foundation published Jun 29, 2010 last modified Jul 26, 2022 11:27 AM
Free software is simply software that respects our freedom — our freedom to learn and understand the software we are using. Free software is designed to free the user from restrictions put in place by proprietary software, and so using free software lets you join a global community of people who are making the political and ethical assertion of our rights to learn and to share what we learn with others.

You can install free software applications on your Mac and use them instead of proprietary software from Apple and others.

Free software and cellphones
by Bradley M. Kuhn published Jun 29, 2010
The mobile telephone market has never functioned like the traditional computer market. Historically, the mobile user made arrangements with some network carrier through a long-term contract. That carrier "gave" the user a phone or discounted it as a loss-leader. Under that system, few people take their phone hardware choice all that seriously. Perhaps users pay a bit more for a slightly better phone, but generally they nearly always pick among the limited choices provided by the given carrier.

Blog Entry chemical/x-pdb More about the App Store GPL Enforcement
by Brett Smith published May 26, 2010 last modified May 26, 2010 10:24 PM

GPL Enforcement in Apple's App Store
by Brett Smith published May 25, 2010 last modified May 27, 2010 07:12 AM
An iPhone port of GNU Go is currently being distributed through Apple's App Store. However, this distribution is not in compliance with the GNU GPL. The primary problem is that Apple imposes numerous legal restrictions on use and distribution of GNU Go through the iTunes Store Terms of Service, which is forbidden by section 6 of GPLv2. So today we have written to Apple and asked them to come into compliance. We would be happy to see Apple distribute these programs under the GPL's terms, but unfortunately, it seems much more likely that they'll simply make the problem go away by removing GNU Go from the App Store.

Blog Entry Pot, meet kettle: a response to Steve Jobs' letter on Flash
by John Sullivan published May 03, 2010 last modified Nov 02, 2012 12:45 PM
Watching two proprietary software companies deeply opposed to computer user freedom lob accusations back and forth about who is more opposed to freedom has been surreal, to say the least. But what's been crystal clear is that the freedom these companies are arguing about is their own, not that of their users. And what they are calling freedom isn't freedom at all -- it is the ability to control those users. Adobe is mad at Apple for not letting Adobe control iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users via Flash, and Apple is mad at Adobe for suggesting that Apple is arbitrarily abusing its control over Application Store users.

by John Sullivan published Apr 30, 2010 last modified Apr 30, 2010 03:03 PM
Apple's use of proprietary software and recommendation of an explicitly patent-afflicted standard (H.264) are inconsistent with the free web.
