I agree that the business cards should have some space for writing names
and phone numbers etc. Here's a version with a designated doodle box:
Improve at will!
I've adjusted the definition of Free Software slightly. As the original is
based on the FSF definition and is part of IFSO's constitution, perhaps that
was a bad idea.
Here is the old version (as used on our website):
Software is Free Software if it comes with permission for all recipients to
do the following four things:
* Run the program, for any purpose.
* Study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs.
* Redistribute copies.
* Improve the program, and release your improvements to the public.
I think it's slightly awkward. In particular, it switches from "Software" to
"Program", and also from "all recipients" to "your". Also, the "permission
for all recipients to..." is perhaps a little pedantic. Here is the
simplified version I put on the business cards:
Software is Free Software if it comes with permission to:
1. Run it for any purpose;
2. Study how it works & adapt it to your needs;
3. Redistribute copies, and
4. Improve it & release your improvements to the public.
