The higher court previously gave a favorable ruling for software freedom, however, upon remand, the lower court held that Jacobsen had not shown sufficient harm to qualify for an injunction against the defendant. Jacbosen is appealing that decision. SFLC's brief calls on the court to give injunctive relief to FOSS developers."

Non-profit structures for FLOSS are essential, and yet the non-profits that exist are grossly underfunded. I believe we could radically change the resources of non-profits in the FLOSS world if everyone who benefits from the community commits to giving just $200/year to 2-4 non-profits of their choice. FLOSS Foundations maintains a great list to help you find ones that match you interests." Link to Original Source
