"The third annual Software Freedom Day (SFD) will take place
worldwide on September 16. Project organizers say the event,
designed to raise awareness about the benefits of using free

our human rights,' says Pia Waugh, the newly elected president of
Software Freedom International (SFI), the official support
organization for Software Freedom Day..."
