Submission + - Why Web-Freedom Should Matter for Stallman Too (logilogi.org)

wybo writes: "As we all know the Web-Loophole was not fixed in GPL v3. But what fewer of us know is that Richard Stallman still really seems to think that Web-applications don't need to be free. In Why Web-Freedom Should Matter for Stallman Too, and as part of it's conversation with Stallman, the LogiLogi Foundation sets out clearly why, with the growth of the web and the slow reduction of the OS to the status of not much more than a device-driver, freedoms are needed on the web too if we want the powerfull ideals of Free Software to remain relevant. A list of four freedoms on each of three different planes (code, data, and the running application) is suggested, but open for debate."
