  7. <h1>FSFE makes copyrights computer readable</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">
  9. The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) is proud to release its next version of our REUSE practices designed to make computers understand software copyrights and licenses.
  10. </p>
  11. <p>
  12. The <a href="https://reuse.software/">REUSE practices</a> help software developers make simple additions to license headers which make it easier for a computer to determine what license applies to the various parts of a programs source code. By following the REUSE practices, software developers can ensure their intent to license software under a particular license is understood
  13. and more readily adhered to.
  14. </p>
  15. <p>
  16. Together with the updated practices, which mostly clarify and make
  17. explicit some points, the FSFE is also releasing a set of
  18. developer tools and examples which show the REUSE practices in action.
  19. Three example repositories, together with an example walkthrough of the
  20. process used to make the cURL project REUSE compliant, are complemented
  21. with a simple tool to validate whether a program is REUSE compliant.

  25. With our REUSE initiative, we hope to inspire software developers to
  26. think about writing copyright and license information -- the metadata of
  27. software -- in ways which make them easier to parse programmatically.

  30. says Jonas Öberg, Executive Director of the FSFE.
