  10. <h1>Let's get rid of non-free PDF advertisement</h1>
  11. <p class="background">What would you think about a sign on the highway
  12. saying “You need a Volkswagen to drive on this road. Contact your
  13. Volkswagen dealer for a gratis test drive – Your Government”?</p>
  14. <h2>Situation</h2>
  15. <p>When it comes to software that opens PDF files, many public sector
  16. organisations do this every day. With the campaign we have
  17. turned the spotlight on government organisations who behave this way,
  18. exposing how frequent such advertisements for non-free software are. With
  19. the help of activists across Europe, we are contacting these organisations
  20. and explain them how to improve their websites so that they respect our
  21. freedom.</p>
  22. <h2></h2>
  23. <p>First FSFE's volunteers created All of the PDF readers on
  24. are Free Software, respecting your basic four freedoms to
  25. use, study, share and improve them. This gives you control over your
  26. computer and helps protect your privacy.</p>
  27. <h2>Contacting public bodies</h2>
  28. <p>With the help of our Fellows and of hundreds other Free Software
  29. activists, we have collected over 2000 bug reports ( FSFE has sent a letter
  30. to all the public administrations on our list asking them to either remove
  31. their advertising for proprietary software or at least run equal
  32. advertising for Free Software, so that users of their websites realise that
  33. they have a choice. Currently more than 550 public bodies changed their
  34. websites accordingly.</p>
  35. <h2>Petition to remove advertisement for non-free software</h2>
  36. <p>Our "Petition For The Removal Of Proprietary Software Advertising On
  37. Public Institution Websites" was signed by over 90 organisations, 60
  38. businesses and 2690 individuals. You can see the list of the signatories at
  40. <h2>What we want to do</h2>
  41. <p>We will maintain We will continue to contact the remaining
  42. organisations, and remind them to fix their bugs. Therefore, we will continue to
  43. improve our documentation how to contact public bodies, as well as
  44. information how to contact companies.</p>
  45. <h2>Contact institutions on your own</h2>
  46. <p>If you discover a page of a public institution or administration that
  47. advertises non-free software and is not yet or does not appear as resolved on
  48. the list, do not hesitate to contact them on your own ( For this
  49. purpose you can use our model letter ( just change the address, the
  50. URL, and the name. Then send it out per mail or post.</p>
  51. <p>Inform us about the institutions you are contacting, and the progress
  52. you are making. We will publish the positive results alongside with the
  53. other reported institutions.</p>
