Ratificaron la necesidad de impulsar y fomentar la concreción de normas a nivel del MERCOSUR para la efectiva implementación de políticas de fomento de uso, desarrollo, implementación, investigación y transferencia tecnológica basados en el modelo de software libre.

Ils ont soutenu le développement du logiciel libre, qui permettra d’activer le développement régional de solutions en matière de Technologies de l’Information et des Communications (TICs), afin d’atteindre une véritable appropriation, promotion de la connaissance libre et transfert technologique, réduisant la dépendance à des solutions fournies par des multinationales du secteur ou des entreprises non disposées à respecter les nouvelles industries de la région.
Ils ont affirmé la nécessité de promouvoir l’usage de logiciels libres dans les programmes nationaux destinés à l’inclusion numérique.
Ils ont ratifié la nécessité de stimuler et de favoriser la consolidation de normes au niveau du #MERCOSUR pour la mise en œuvre effective de politiques visant à promouvoir l’utilisation, le développement, la mise en œuvre, la recherche et le transfert technologique basés sur le modèle du logiciel libre.

*Legal aspects of free and open source software COMPILATION OF BRIEFING NOTES - 2013-07-09*

Legal aspects of free and open source software COMPILATION OF BRIEFING NOTES - 2013-07-09

participants: Eben Moglen, Ian Sullivan, Patrice-Emmanuel Schmitz, Calro Piana, Rishab Ghosh, Philippe Laurent

Carlo Piana - 2013-07-09: “A primer on Free Software licensing I wrote, in the briefing papers of the Workshop at EU Parliament. Go an read it. [...] I hope it’s useful, especially for those who are not really conversant with the matter and need some solid, yet simple, explanation. There is too much rubbish around.”



Legal aspects of free and open source software COMPILATION OF BRIEFING NOTES - 2013-07-09 [Pdf]


The public drafting and discussion of GPLv3 in 2006-07 was a landmark in nongovernmental transnational lawmaking. Free and open source software production communities are held together by copyright licensing, as are free cultural production communities like Wikipedia. Their efforts to improve those licenses—to increase their utility in multiple legal systems, to take account of technical and economic changes in the field, and to increase their efficiency of operation and enforcement—are among the most important examples of genuinely democratic, participatory law-making that we have experienced so far in the 21st century. In the interest of improving both the European Parliament’s access to the details of this particular process, and to assist it in self-scrutiny, with respect to its extraordinary consistency in missing its opportunities in this area, Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC) submits the records of this process, which it assisted its client, the Free Software Foundation, to design and execute.
