"The Software Freedom Law Center provides free legal
representation and other law-related services to open source
software developers. The organization began in 2005 under the
direction of Eben Moglen, a professor of law and legal history at
Columbia University Law School.
"His law center represents many of the most important and
well-established free software and open source projects. The SFLC's
goal is to help non-profit FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software)
"The free legal assistance provides programmers and open source
projects with sound legal and organizational structures. The SFLC's
goal is to protect the public's right to access, use and develop
software, according to Moglen, the founding director."
