brdsutte (576841) writes "So we've come to accept that Facebook knows a lot about us and our friends, and uses that to target ads. But how about them lying about what we do or like and mispresenting our behavior? Every now and then these friend finder ads show up, in which it is claimed that this and that friend already used friend finder. I've checked my mentioned friends, and none of them actually used it. If Facebook is lying about this, why wouldn't it be lying about other user behavior? Any other bad experiences like this? Or any suggestion on how to make them stop?"

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes "The Free Software Foundation has discovered that an application currently distributed in Apple's App Store is a port of GNU Go. This makes it a GPL violation, because Apple controls distribution of all such programs through the iTunes Store Terms of Service, which is incompatible with section 6 of the GPLv2. It's an unusual enforcement action, though, because they don't want Apple to just make the app disappear, they want Apple to grant its users the full freedoms offered by the GPL. Accordingly, they haven't sued or sent any legal threats and are instead in talks with Apple about how they can offer their users the GPLed software legally, which is difficult because it's not possible to grant users all the freedoms they're entitled to and still comply with Apple's restrictive licensing terms."
