  10. <h1>Freedom in Multimedia</h1>
  11. </div>
  12. <p>Multimedia in general and audio in particular were areas dominated almost
  13. exclusively by proprietary software. Within the "A GNU/Linux Audio
  14. distribution" (AGNULA) project, a group of European universities, companies and
  15. organisations — among them the <a href="/">Free Software Foundation Europe</a>
  16. (FSFE) — set out to change this in 2001.</p>
  17. <p>Version 1.0 of AGNULA was finally released in early 2004.</p>
  18. <h2>Using AGNULA</h2>
  19. <h3>If you are a user</h3>
  20. <p>Anyone is welcome, even encouraged to use and participate in AGNULA. The
  21. best starting point is <a href="http://www.agnula.info/">the AGNULA project and
  22. community web site</a>.</p>
  23. <h3>If you are a vendor</h3>
  24. <p>Anyone is welcome to provide distributions, products or services based upon
  25. and under the designation AGNULA, provided you comply with the rules of the <a
  26. href="license.html">AGNULA trademark license</a>.</p>

  33. <p>AGNULA managed to be accepted as European Commission project IST-2001-34879
  34. and was funded from April 1st, 2002 until March 31st, 2004. The project was
  35. coordinated by Nicola Bernardini from Centro Tempo Reale, Florence, Italy.</p>
  36. <p>The project was finished to the full satisfaction of the European Commission
  37. and you can <a
  38. href="http://istresults.cordis.lu/index.cfm?section=news&amp;tpl=article&amp;BrowsingType=Features&amp;ID=64618">
  39. read the final article about AGNULA on the IST results page</a> of the European
  40. Commission.</p>
  41. <h3>FSFE Contributions</h3>
  42. <p>One seminal role of the FSFE inside the AGNULA EU project was to take care
  43. of the legal issues, decide upon acceptable licensing policies and care about
  44. legal maintainability. Other tasks were making sure that Free Software
  45. community interests are heard, helping that information is provided in the best
  46. possible way and work on the dissemination of the final results:</p>
