Public Money? Public Code!

10:05 - 10:40

Talk 1

“Why is software that is programmed with taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software? We want legislation requiring that publicly financed software developed for public sector must be made publicly available under a Free and Open Source Software licence. If it is public money, it should be public code as well. Code paid by all people should be available to all people!

This talk will provide a brief overview of the FSFE’s previous and ongoing activities to foster software freedom in Europe on the levels of politics, legal work with enterprises, and general public awareness.”
