Our Year in Review

This has been a big year for Software Freedom Conservancy in our tireless efforts to promote ethical technology, increase diversity and inclusion in FOSS, continuing to fight for your rights with copyleft compliance, and support our incredible member projects. Our staff engaged in many invited speaking opportunities, we grew our staff, and we continue to build community around important issues like the software Right to Repair movement. We hosted our first large conference, , and while we finalize details for next year, we hope to see you there to join us in community!

SFC lawyers after recent Vizio case- CC BY-SA 4.0

Our lawsuit against Vizio— the first lawsuit of its kind to seek third party beneficiary rights to the complete, corresponding source code under the GPL is progressing! World-changing, public policy litigation requires resources and time, but it's worth every penny so we can build a future where every consumer has access to the source code they need to modify and repair their devices. At a recent hearing in the case, we presented our opposition to Vizio's Summary Judgement Motion, our lawyers presented the eloquent case that recipients of software under the GPL Agreements can enforce their rights to the corresponding source code themselves, and that right should not be preempted by copyright law. We are the only organization currently taking legal action to protect the GPL Agreements in the USA; your support is critical for us to continue these kinds of efforts.

We have also once again filed key DMCA exemptions for the following categories:

  • Computer programs for purposes of good-faith security research
  • "jailbreaking" smart TVs
  • "jailbreaking" routers
  • Literary works consisting of compilations of data generated by medical devices or their personal corresponding monitoring systems, to access personal data
These allow people access (that should be granted in the first place!) to investigate their own devices for issues of license compliance, security, and replacing the firmware on their TVs and routers. It's a key ability to vet and replace software on devices we own and operate, so renewing this exemption each time it comes up is very important for us all. The medical device exemption was submitted by our Executive Director Karen Sandler in partnership with others who are personally affected by proprietary medical technology.

As software based technology becomes more pervasive in our lives, it's vital that we communicate the importance of software freedom to the wider population. In that vein we've created a video (narrated by our Executive Director Karen Sandler) that introduces the ideas of software freedom, and specifically what Software Freedom Conservancy does. We also did a lot of public writings about some of the important issues this year. From our perspective on the Neo4j suit to highlighting problematic behavior from proprietary software companies and calling for folks to Exit Zoom. We'd also like to remind you that as a Sustainer, we will provide you with your own BigBlueButton account so that you can host your own video calls on a FOSS platform. Once you have donated to us, you can fill our the new account signup and your account will be approved.
