"The FSF urges all of its supporters to contact their local congresspeople and advise them to vote against the STRONGER Patents Act. No matter where you are in the world, please stand firm in campaigning for the right of free software users and programmers to use, copy, and develop tools for user and community empowerment."

Recently, Github has restricted people from Iran, Syria, and other regions from accessing their private repositories and the static website host Github Pages.

Free and ethical technology use denounces such crony nepotism oppressing individuals from practicing technological liberties and hacker culture. Please consider using sourcehut.org/ as your new host for your projects. Sourcehut is 100% libre, composable, Javascript-free, and does not track you at all!

Numerous class-action lawsuits have been filed against companies using nepotism tactics to undervalue those who serve the company. Not a single class-action lawsuit has been taken to proceedings in court, dismissed because these gig-economy "jobs" are not contracts of employment for those various people who fulfill these services.

My rule of thumb is as such:
1) Do NOT use those apps, or participate in the gig-economy.

2) If you do use those apps, TIP in CASH! The currency with little tracking

"The way copyright works in the United States does need changing. But the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act), which will treat certain copyright claims like traffic tickets, does nothing to make any useful changes. Instead, it would invite abuse, magnify the existing problem of copyright’s unpredictable damages, and would give a lot of authority to a new, quasi-judicial body in the Copyright Office, not the actual courts."

Most free (libre) software is also gratis, but not all! Some free software costs money, but with it comes all of the freedoms to share with your neighbor and make modifications! Buying free software ensures that our traditions can continue, and donating to gratis projects does the same.

We are not truly free until we can help our neighbors and resist exploitation in all walks of life. Keep fighting the good fight, and the fight for free software!
