ADDING LINKS IS TEMPORARILY BLOCKED - if you want to add a link, just put a space in it so that it doesn't work. The admin will then fix the link for you very quickly. This will be fixed as soon as I have the new spam blocking system in place.
Free Software Foundation
Free Software Foundation (FSF) is an organisation focused on giving certain freedoms to computer users. As part of this, they have been fighting against software patents since the late 1980s.
FSF has published many essays about software patents on gnu.org. A list can be found at Richard Stallman#Articles
