Mar 16, 2002, 05:00 (9 Talkback[s])

CAAST, the Canadian Alliance against Software Theft, is promoting a truce for businesses and organizations with improperly-licensed proprietary software.

Roaring Penguin Software Inc. would like to help you avoid costly software audits and potential fines, and help you stay legal. To that end, we are making the following offer:

  • Roaring Penguin Software Inc. will offer one day (7 hours) free consultation to any non-profit organization in Ottawa which wishes to replace proprietary license-required software with free software like Linux and OpenOffice. Never again face a software audit.
  • We will offer three hours free consultation to any Canadian or Ontario government organization (especially in the health-care sector) which wishes to replace proprietary license-required software with free software like Linux.
  • We will offer one free hour consultation to any for-profit business in Ottawa which wishes to avoid software audits and fines by replacing license-required software with free software

The Fine Print

  • The above offers are subject to availability of Roaring Penguin's staff.
  • Free consultation is contingent upon the replacement of proprietary software with free software on at least one computer. If no such replacement takes place, our normal consulting rates apply.
