  • Boycott Software Freedom Conservancy – Choose Freedom, not enforcement

    In October, the SFC stated they received a grant for GPL enforcement from ARDC https://sfconservancy.org/news/2020/oct/01/new-copyleft-strategy-launched-with-ARDC-grant/ Then SFC submitted a proposed DMCA exemption – to police software for “investigative” purposes. https://www.copyright.gov/1201/2021/petitions/proposed/New%20Pet.%20-%20Software%20Freedom%20Conservancy%20-%201.pdf FYI… nice link copyright.gov BLEH
