Our Policy Fellow, Bradley M. Kuhn, explains how we can restore #copyleft equality and rid ourselves of toxic proprietary relicensing (sometimes imprecisely called dual licensing) with a novel copyleft clause (invented by Richard Fontana for copyleft-next). https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2020/jan/06/copyleft-equality/ #GPL #FOSS #FOSSLicensing #AGPL
@Valenoern AFAIK at least in US law, copyright notice have no bearing on copyright itself. In other words, even without a notice the author(s) still have and can claim copyright in their work.

Hi Fediverse 👋
We host our site on a .org domain. Furthermore, we heavily rely on services hosted on .org domains - as for example @codeberg
Please consider supporting the initiative by spreading the word or signing the letter:
@brainwane I am aware of the project, although given the fact that they chose to not disclose the project name publicly, I don't want to betray that trust. It is a very cool & valuable project, and I strongly encourage anyone interested to apply who thinks they might possibly be qualified. 😄
Please join us in the signing of this petition and consider adding years to your .org registration today.
5541 letters have currently been sent to stop the sale - add your name now!

@LWFlouisa Go right ahead!
Why RMS was actually lynched.
@Shamar As I & many have pointed out, people have been denouncing his behavior for years, and trying to get him removed from his positions of trust and leadership. RMS deliberately designed FSF/GNU as a dictatorship to preserve his power.
Again, you don't seem to grasp the differences between criminal law and betrayal of public trust.
I"m done attempting to interact with you until you get your head out of the sand and learn some basics about how leadership works.
@davidpgil It's not about free speech. It's about damaging the trust in what you've been designated to lead. Being a serial violator of an organization's code of conduct is more than a "personality flaw", it's a disqualification to claim leadership of that organization. Bradley Kuhn put it best: http://ebb.org/bkuhn/blog/2019/10/15/fsf-rms.html
@davidpgil Written by a radical conspiracy theorist with a decades old axes to grind. This is not the reality of the situation. Being abusive toward underrepresented groups in FLOSS is not "doing what's right"
