  12. <blockquote>
  13. <p>Numerous EU public websites refer to proprietary software, like Acrobat
  14. Reader, as the only possible way of reading PDF files, and provide a
  15. download link. This is a case of direct advertising by public institutions,
  16. which creates a competitive advantage for one company to sell its
  17. products.</p>
  18. <ol>
  19. <li>Currently, on how many of the Commission’s own web pages do such
  20. advertisements appear?</li>
  21. <li>Could the Commission provide links to these pages, as well as names
  22. of EU institutions that have such advertising on their websites?</li>
  23. <li>What are the Commission’s reasons (e.g. financial gain, lack of other
  24. functional software, etc.) for advertising this particular software as
  25. the only possible way of reading PDF files?</li>
  26. <li>Have the institutions that have such advertising on their website
  27. explained whether they have tried other PDF readers before? Which
  28. software did they mention?</li>
  29. <li>What steps is the Commission taking to resolve this problem regarding
  30. a) the Commission’s own website, and b) the websites of public
  31. institutions in Member States?</li>
  32. </ol>
