[liberationtech] Call for free software projects ( and other types of organizations ) to sign an anti-patent-troll pledge

The Calyx Institute is running a campaign to try to get 40 organizations
to sign a pledge against patent troll lawsuits directed against Linux,
Android, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Tor Project and dozens of other free
software projects and organizations

What if your organization isn't one that develops software or holds
software patents?  That's OK !  We still would like your organization to
sign the pledge.

Even if you run a supermarket, a social network or a workers union, we
are very happy with your organization becoming a  member of the
community supporting patent non-aggression. Open source is everywhere
(from the cash register running on GNU/Linux, the server that hosts your
website and mail or the medical equipment measuring your lung capacity).
Everyone should be able to use these open source packages donated by
their creators without thinking twice. By joining, you make a difference.

The link to the pledge, and associated FAQ's is at the following URL:

It's really easy to do, it should take less than 5 minutes.

Just click the URL, click on the 'Sign me up' button, then fill out your
project or organization's information, and just be sure to do what it
says in the confirmation email ( which comes from a totally different
domain )

The subject of the email should be something like "OIN license agreement
for you" from licenseesign at
