The US-Australia "Free" Trade Agreement (FTA)
: Linux Australia
just released its position paper
on the FTA and the negative effect it will have on Open-Source in Australia. This is a very important issue, so if you are in Australia, consider writing a letter to your local member of parliament, submitting something to the senate committee considering this treaty, or raising awareness of the issues in your local IT community. Our mailing list
will soon provide details on how you can get involved - but don't wait - the senate committee submission period closes on April 30.
