Public Money, Public Code.

#  https://publiccode.eu

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 license. If it is public money, it
should be public code as well.

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