"Richard Stallman posted a message on gnu.misc.discuss seeking
people interested in re-establishing the League of
Programming Freedom. The LPF did not take a position on
proprietary vs. free software but instead focused on
fighting those things which threated the ability of anyone to
write software, specifically software patents and look and
feel copyrights. The LPF is now dormant, but if people
are willing to step up into a leadership role to work to
re-establish this organization, it could become active again.
I don't think I need to tell anyone here that software
patents are worse than ever, not to mention such
monstrosities as WIPO. Stallman's article is not yet on
DejaNews, but the message is is 199809161619.KAA25917@wijiji.santafe.edu
The LPF web site is archived here "
