Hacking politics: Why Free Software needs a lobby

A session at SFK12 Software Freedom Kosova Conference 2012

  • Erik Albers

Saturday 8th September, 2012

11:35am to 12:20pm (CET)

Free Software and its projects depend on developers and supportive communities, but they are also in need of a non-discriminatory political and legal environment. SecureBoot, patents or proprietary standards, for example, come with legal obstacles that threaten the development or even the existence of Free Software. This talk will focus on how political work and campaigns in favor of Free Software look like and how you can become a political hacktivist, too.
