Submission European Commission's Low Attack on Open Source->

jrepin writes: "While the UK has seen the light, the EU has actually gone backwards on open standards in recent times. The original European Interoperability Framework also required royalty-free licensing, but what was doubtless a pretty intense wave of lobbying in Brussels overturned that, and EIF v2 ended up pushing FRAND, which effectively locks out open source — the whole point of the exercise. Shamefully, some parts of the European Commission are still attacking open source."
