FFII[Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure -- concluded on 2008]
The FFII is a non-profit organisation with branches in various European countries. FFII concentrates on the spread of data processing literacy. They support the development of public information products based on copyright, free competition, and open standards.
In daily practice, FFII is the driving force of the movement which fights against the legalisation of software patents in the European legislation. This means in practice: active lobbying in the European administration in Brussels (in particular the European Parliament), distributing lots of information and press releases, and organising conferences and demonstrations (both physically and on the web).
