Old news, but still I though I should briefly describe what happened:

1) On October 7th the BSA sent a letter to the European Commission.

Basically they don’t like Open Standards, since they want to impose their their proprietary standards.

2) So the FSFE (Free Software Foundation Europe) didn’t like that at all, so they reacted sending the following letter to the EU Commission.

And then published their Analysis here:

3) Open Standards in Europe: FSFE responds to BSA letter [LWN.net]

4) And they have a basic description of open Standards.

So in general, BSA conformed by many SW Companies, is afraid that Open Standards will be established in Europe.

Cheers!

ALERT: EU EIF 2, have the big Software Companies bought people in the EU Commission?
