Your "hand-me-down" computer will be replaced within a few years.  An
interface copyright monopoly lasts 70 years.  If you want to have free
systems worth using on your next computer, you need to help make sure
such systems will be legally allowed.

One thing you can do is to join the League for Programming Freedom.
That is the only grass-roots organization working against interface
copyright and software patents.

The League has tried various methods: protest rallies, boycotts,
appearances at trade shows, testifying at PTO hearings, and friend of
the court briefs.  So far it has done these things on a small scale.
It can do more if it has more members.

What have YOU done?

What are you going to do?
