md @:color.soft is a network of popular education, which has its origins in
the education world, which is principally dedicated to free (as in free speech)
software. It is collaboratively organized around three main issues: promotion,
dissemination and development of free software, enhancement of open source culture,
and an online platform of open services.

## For an open Internet

The use of free software and open standards on the Internet is the main purpose
of our project @:(html.dio).

Access to source code is the cornerstone of open source principles. @:color.soft
commits itself to place each application available in its projects under [free
license](https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.fr.html).

In case of improvement of the code, @:color.soft commits itself to place
the contribution under free license (compatible with the original license) and
will encourage any voluntary contribution from users by inviting them to enter
in contact with the author.

@:color.soft commits itself to make the source code accessible, whether
by publishing a link pointing to the official website of the application, or,
if the latter is no longer available, by publishing the code in question on a
repository.

Doing this, @:color.soft demonstrates its probity by allowing every user
to check the source code, to potentially improve it, and above all to ensure that
no unfair use will be made of his data, identity, or rights.

Users will then be able to knowingly use the available applications and learn
about all their features, advantages, limits and possible uses.

None of the data produced with the help of these applications belong to @:color.soft,
who does not apply any copyright nor censors your content. However, any content
that would be considered infringing or illegal by French law, once duly signaled,
will be immediately deleted.

## For a decentralized Internet

By offering open applications online, @:color.soft intends to promote alternative
solutions to proprietary applications that some companies propose in order to
achieve monopolies and make abusive use of personal data.

These alternatives are examples of the diversity of available open-source solutions
which can be used for personal or collective purpose. In this perspective, @:color.soft
is commited to foster their dissemination by publishing tutorials explaining how
to install these applications on your own server.

Equal access to these applications is a strong commitment: by offering them for
free, @:color.soft wishes to promote their use to the largest extent, and
to give a proof of concept that a decentralized and egalitarian Internet is possible.

## For an ethical Internet

The ethics of opensource software is about sharing and independence. @:color.soft
commits itself to never practice any censorship of the contents, nor any surveillance
of the actions of its users, and to never answer any administrative or authorities
demands without a formal legal request. In return, users commit themselves, in
production or hosting of their contents, to respect the frameworks provided by
law.

We do not practice any discrimation among users, so as to ensure the greatest
accessibility.

Personal data will not be exploited for commercial issues, or transmitted to a
third party, nor used for purposes that are not specified in the present charter.
However, users must be aware that their data might be rendered accessible, especially
when they make them public in the context of a collaborative application. In this
case, users remain responsible for their content.

## For an Internet of solidarity

@:color.soft is a not-for-profit. Its volunteers and employees devote their
time to ensure the continuity of the services offered to users. Our business model
is based on mutualisation of energies and costs. Our services are free, but it
does not mean they cost nothing. If a large number of supporters financially encouraged
@:color.soft to maintain its services, an even larger number of persons would
be able to use them, and they could even be improved.

@:color.soft has a popular education approach, and thus shares as much knowledge
as it can in order to promote the use of free software and teach users how to
install free services on their servers. Sharing technical and cognitive ressources
is what makes the Internet a common good, available for everyone and belonging
to no one.

Sharing technical and cognitive ressources is what makes the Internet a common good, available for everyone and belonging to no oneAt Framasoft, we don’t like (and don’t believe in) intellectual property.

But we live in a world that does, and need to protect ourselves and our work.

So we have registered some trademarks (PeerTube, Mobilizon, Framasoft…), and here is what we pledge.

## 1. We don’t plan to attack

Registering trademarks is a defensive move.
It’s to protect our work both from people who might otherwise register the
names we work hard to make known, and from those who would sully the names of
the projects we are building with our values, political stances and passion.

## 2. Don’t Panic

We will only use trademark law in last resort. We are not trademark trolls
looking forward to extorting money though legal violence.
We just want to protect the reputation of names we are working hard to make known.

We really intend to settle any problem we might have with you by talking it
out together.
If you act in good faith, there’s no need to panic.
We’re sure we will understand eachother and find an elegant solution.

## 3. Don’t fool people

If you say, or imply that you are us or that you are the “official one”,
we will use trademark law against you.
If we start getting messages of people who think your actions come from us,
we will contact you to talk and find a way to make it clear that you are you,
and we are us.

In our experience anyway, people are not fools, and honesty is a very powerful
way to bond with them.
We will use trademark law, in last resort and if needed, to protect this
relationship of trust and honesty we have built with people.

## 4. Don’t be an asshole

Really, it’s that simple.

Being assholy includes things that are forbidden by French law (promoting
Nazism and fascism, pedocriminality, endangering others, fake news…),
especially discrimination (against sex, gender, race, religion, orientation,
minorities… well, you know the drill…).

If you are using names of things we’ve worked hard for to be an asshole,
we will use trademark law against you.
If you try to push the limits, want to test, provoke and question society,
well good for you, but we don’t have time for this: don’t use our trademarks.
If you think there are too many rules, or that it’s too complicated not to be
an asshole: don’t use our trademarks.

If you fear you might be an asshole without knowing it, by ignorance even
though you try to keep yourself educated: you’ll be fine.

## 5. Let’s respect each other

If you’re not sure, come and talk with us. If we have a problem we’ll try to
come and talk to you first.

If by using the names of our projects, your actions start to soak up our time
and energy, if you’re giving us a bad name, we’ll definitely have a problem.
To avoid that, just remember that there are people who worked hard to give
the names you are using their honest reputation, and just respect that work.

If we find ourselves having to answer for your actions, we’ll need to talk.

When we talk together, if you’re trying to be a smart ass and negotiate every
word, if you don’t want to hear and consider our position (be assured we
always try to do the same with others), then we’ll probably settle our
disagreement using trademark law.

But we don’t want to, so let’s find a way to understand each other
.
