Subject: EUCD action : Status for European Countries

Dear All,

As you known, the EUCD (2001/29/CE) is a real threat for the four
freedoms of Free Software and for Freedom in general.

So we (at ael)  think the best way is to have a coherent action
regarding and a coherent source of information (with cross-references)
around the application of the EUCD in the different european

So we have setup a small wiki page with status :


So EVERYBODY can edit it and add his specific information about his
respective country.

Thanks a lot.
