Does the #GPL require that source code of modified versions be posted to the public? "The GPL does not require you to release your modified version, or any part of it. You are free to [...]" Read the full answer at u.fsf.org/3kt

For some reason, now and perhaps more than ever, we still feel the need to remind the public that "intellectual property" is a bogus concept, grouping multiple **completely unrelated** sets of laws. Please read u.fsf.org/3l7 and share the word!

Solo espero que @maop no le venda mstdn.mx a Musk
Por qué si eso pasa, no se a donde me iré.

#Musk buying #Twitter is exactly why it's so important that technologies like #Mastodon exist. Free speech should not be handled by a single billionaire, it should be handled by hundreds of different instances, all with their own definition of free speech (along with the option for anyone to spin up their own instance with their own interpretations).

It's very frustrating that people like Elon Musk and companies like Twitter get so much of the dialog, when amazing decentralized technologies like Mastodon and PeerTube exist. We will continue doing our part every day at tilvids.com to bring awareness to these amazing technologies.

Software patents are still a real and present threat. Read campaigns team intern Panos Alevropoulos's new post for our #endsoftwarepatents campaign: u.fsf.org/3fp

A #Belgian bank decides to force all customers to:

* buy an #iPhone or #Android
* subscribe to GSM svc
* give the ph# to Apple or Google
* tell #Apple or #Google where they bank (by downloading the app)
* install & execute proprietary #nonfreesoftware

Money is trapped in the accounts- held hostage until customers take the above steps.

Why is no one talking about this? #Aion (#MontePaschi) forces ppl into #surveillanceCapitalism w/Google/Apple patronage & no one seems to notice.

Pour les curieux, voici une coupe de l'intérieur d'un câble sous-marin qui repose à de grandes profondeurs et qui relie les continents pour acheminer de l'énergie électrique et des télécommunications.
Et pour info, 30cm de câble coûte environ $400...
