  7. <h1>FSFE supports Hellwig's GPL compliance lawsuit</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">FSFE welcomes
  9. the <a href="http://sfconservancy.org/news/2015/mar/05/vmware-lawsuit/">action</a>
  10. which Christoph Hellwig and the Software Freedom
  11. Conservancy are taking to bring VMware into compliance
  12. with the GNU General Public License.</p>
  13. <blockquote><p>
  14. FSFE's president Karsten Gerloff comments: "Free Software
  15. is a public resource, and it is governed by legal rules
  16. and social norms. Anyone who draws on this resource
  17. without respecting those rules and norms does damage to
  18. the community at large. The great majority of such
  19. problems are successfully resolved through dialogue and
  20. goodwill. It is only when dialogue fails that legal steps
  21. become necessary in order to protect this resource which
  22. we all share.
  23. </p></blockquote>
  24. <p>
  25. While FSFE regrets that this lawsuit has arisen, we
  26. believe that safeguarding Free Software against those who
  27. try to appropriate for themselves what belongs to us all
  28. is of the utmost importance.
