This week, the software community is on the verge of another big decision: whether to remove the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) label from its software.
While many FOSS software projects remain open source, some are becoming more commercial, including the commercial Free Software and Open Group Licenses (OGL) licenses that are used to license open source software and other open source hardware products.
Some of the companies that are moving toward commercial licenses, such as Google and Adobe, have taken steps to avoid using the Free Label.
They have changed their names to trademarks, and they have removed links to their products, but the Free label remains.
This week’s decision by the Free Group Licensing Association, which represents companies including Google, Adobe and Apple, came after the Free software community voted in favor of a proposal from the Free Library of Congress (FLLC) that would remove the label.
Some of its members, including Microsoft, Adobe, Amazon and others, also voted against the FLLC proposal, citing concerns about its impact on the Free Code Project (FCP), an open source open source project that advocates for a more open, free, and democratic software ecosystem.
Many of the software companies that have adopted FOSS labels have chosen to take their products to a more commercial license, with some opting to sell their software directly to customers.
The Free Software community voted this week to remove that label from all FOSS products.
This means that if you use any of the products listed below, you are no longer free to use those products without paying a royalty.
