<p>A working group has been set up in January 7th, 2002 by
<a href="http://www.april.org/">APRIL</a> and <a
href="http://france.fsfeurope.org/index.en.html">FSF France</a>.
The original idea is from Pierre Jarillon (<a
href="http://www.abul.org">ABUL</a> president). The objective is to have Free
Software classified as an intangible world cultural heritage by the
<a href="http://www.unesco.org/">UNESCO</a>.</p>
<p><a href="http://www.april.org/">APRIL</a> has set up a working
group to have Free Software classified as an intangible world
cultural heritage by <a href="http://www.unesco.org/">UNESCO</a>
(from an idea by Pierre Jarillon, President of <a
href="http://www.abul.org">ABUL</a>).</p>
<p>Why&nbsp;? First you must understand it would benefit to the Free Software
community, but also to mankind as a whole. Free software is not only about
computer science, technique or even licenses. It deals with freedom,
equality and fraternity. Freedom to copy, to study, to modify and to
redistribute software or documentations. Equality, same rights for every
user, without discrimination. Fraternity, because we talk about sharing and
mutual help. Moreover Free Software is already part of the mankind heritage,
in fact. We are trying to obtain a UNESCO recognition. The previous values
are common to the Free Software community and the UNESCO.</p>
<p>Why&nbsp;? This classification of Free Software as an intangible
world cultural heritage gives an important weight to Free Software
(a world-wide echo, important publicity, recognition and promotion
of its philosophy, legal protection by the UNESCO, Anti-FUD
arguments, etc). And it is not expensive to try. Freedom
has everything to win here.</p>
<p>Now let's see what the community could expect from this recognition. First
a strong support, because the UNESCO is a major organisation, with an
important aura. It could give a major recognition to Free Software, and a
very large diffusion. Sort of planetary promotion. Finally, it would also
bring legal protection to Free Software (via the UNESCO legal services),
against looming <a href="links.en.html">threats</a>.</p>
<p>We'll begin by ethic/philosophical arguments. We previously talked about
freedom, equality and fraternity values, about our philosophy which is
beneficiary for mankind as a whole. We also add the transparency value,
which prevails in our community. Finally you should keep in mind only
Free Software can be considered as world heritage. "To serve humanity with
software, software should be free, because software belongs to human
knowledge. Proprietary software does not belong to human knowledge." (Richard
M. Stallman, GNU project founder and <a href="http://www.fsf.org">Free
Software Foundation</a> president).</p>
<p>Now, the social arguments. It's a question of mutual help and knowledge
sharing. To make tools (and even much more than tools) available for
everybody. It seems to meet UNESCO values. Free Software allows a situation
where nobody limits others freedom. Nobody forbids you to copy, to use, to
modify or to redistribute, nobody chains you up. Let's add Free Software
allows a quicker development for developing countries (not only them, it's
also true for other countries). They also allow protection of cultures and a
better ease of use, due to multilingual support.</p>
<p>Technical arguments? Free Software already proves itself (stability,
performances, etc). It's also essential for the computer security domain,
because it's the only one which gives transparency and verification, in a
domain where there can be no blind confidence in a software editor or an
other. Internet would be pretty different from now without Free Software
(60% of web servers, large part of email or DNS servers, etc) and the
Network would have develop slower without it. Free Software brings
continuity: you won't be blocked by an editor death or prisoner in the
version run ("sorry N-1 version is no more supported and nothing runs with
it, and you'll need to change all your hardware to use N version, whose
files are not compatible with N-1 version"). Finally Free Software is about
benefit from work already done, not reinventing the wheel, "sitting on
giants'shoulders" (one can see further).</p>
<p>And now, the facts: Free Software is already part of the world heritage,
as previously said. And it has numerous supports, from governments,
associations, firms, and more and more users. Even the UNESCO has a
<a href="http://www.unesco.org/webworld/portal_freesoft/">Free Software
portal</a> and leads <a
href="http://www.unesco.org.uy/informatica/consorcio/index.html">actions in
Latin America</a>.</p>
