Pinned toot

I'm Freddy, an amateur writer covering, privacy, security and open-source development.

Most of my toots will cover these topics, and I'll try to not get too political.

Just a quick reminder to sugest me as a nominee for the Noonies! I'm currently listed under CyberSecurity, though I'd be more suited to the privacy category. Thanks in advance!

Let's make two conclusions:

1. Free licensing is not a panacea. If something is licensed under GNU General Public License or any of Creative Commons licenses etc., it still doesn't mean that it 100% may be copied. Please keep this in mind.

2. If you want people to know that they are allowed to copy your product freely, don't forget to add at least a promise to not sue them for a trademark or a patent infringement.
