Public money? Public Code!

An open letter published today to the EU government says:

Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?
We want legislation requiring that publicly financed software developed for the public sector be made publicly available under a Free and Open Source Software licence. If it is public money, it should be public code as well.

Code paid by the people should be available to the people!

See https://publiccode.eu/ for the campaign details.

This makes me think of starting an Israeli version…

  1. We already have translations in non-EU languages like traditional Chinese. Please feel fee to contribute translations in languages commonly used in Israel and use the page and the content to lobby for “public money, public code” in Israel.
