TABLE OF CONTENTS



Statement on OpenOffice.org's move to Apache


Oracle, IBM, and the Apache Software Foundation jointly announced
earlier this month that OpenOffice.org would become an official
Apache project. Users and contributors should be aware that it will
become easier for proprietary software developers to distribute
OpenOffice.org as nonfree software since all Apache projects are
distributed under the terms of the Apache License.


While we do recommend the Apache License in specific situations,
we do not believe it is the best choice for software like
OpenOffice.org. This situation calls for copyleft, because the gains
free software stands to make from a non-copyleft license don't
justify giving a handout to proprietary software developers.



AVM violating license of the Linux kernel


A legal case is being heard before the District Court of Berlin
which may have enormous consequences for the way that software is
developed and distributed. The adversaries in the case are the
manufacturer and distributor of DSL routers AVM Computersysteme
Vertriebs GmbH (AVM), and Cybits AG (Cybits) which produces
children's web-filtering software.


The case was brought to court by AVM with the aim of preventing
Cybits from changing any parts of the firmware used in AVM's routers,
including the Linux kernel. The Free Software Foundation Europe
(FSFE) and http://gpl-violations.org
consider AVM's action as a broad attack against the principles of
free software, and thus against the thousands of individuals and
companies developing, improving and distributing free software.



Two new projects can help free software replace
Skype


Skype has been in the news a lot lately: Microsoft agreed to buy
the company, their network has gone down twice recently, and they're
threatening to take unspecified action against developers who try to
write free software to make calls on their system.


There are two free software project that stand to make Skype
obsolete: GNU Free Call and WebRTC and they both could benefit from
your contribution!



Are you up to the Tor challenge?


In March at the LibrePlanet 2011 conference, we presented the 2010
Award for Projects of Social Benefit to the Tor Project for enabling
millions of people to experience freedom of access and expression on
the Internet while keeping them in control of their privacy and
anonymity.


The Electronic Frontier Foundation is encouraging people to run
more Tor nodes to help keep up with the increasing number of people
who rely on Tor. The FSF is already running a Tor node and we hope
some of you reading this will take the challenge too.



Introducing the Compliance Lab's summer intern


We recently welcomed William Theaker at FSF as our summer's
licensing intern. In a blog post, he wrote about what brought him to
free software, and the goals for his internship.



Holding Nintendo Accountable


Over a period of 10 days, 138 people from twenty different
countries made donations of $10 or more in order to send Nintendo's
President and COO, Reggie Fils-Aime, a total of 220 bricks.


Earlier this month, our volunteers assembled the cardboard bricks
and we wrapped each one of them and attached our signed letter
calling for dropping DRM and changing the terms of service.



LibrePlanet featured resource: Free System
Distribution Checklist


Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.


This month, we are featuring the Free System Distribution
Checklist. This page provides a checklist of practical steps you can
take to see whether or not a particular distribution complies with
the "Free System Distribution Guidelines".



Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let
us know at campaigns@fsf.org.

Take action with the FSF


Contributions from thousands of individual members enable the
FSF's work. You can contribute by joining at http://www.fsf.org/join.
If you're already a member, you can help refer new members (and earn
some rewards) by adding a line with your member number to your email
signature like:


I'm an FSF member -- Help us support software freedom!
http://www.fsf.org/jf?referrer=2442


The FSF is also always looking for volunteers
(http://www.fsf.org/volunteer).
From rabble-rousing to hacking, from issue coordination to envelope
stuffing -- there's something here for everybody to do. Also, head
over to our campaign section (http://www.fsf.org/campaigns)
and take action on software patents, DRM, free software adoption,
OpenDocument, RIAA and more.
