<p>Software Freedom Conservancy team members published important writings this year to both give further historical context and modern interpretation. Denver Gingerich wrote about the <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/mar/25/install-gplv2/">installation requirement for the GPLv2</a>. Bradley Kuhn documented the historical record in his related piece about <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/jul/23/tivoization-and-the-gpl-right-to-install/">“Tivoization” and Your Right to Install Under Copyleft</a>. And he writes about <a href=" https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/jun/30/who-should-own-foss-copyrights/">It Matters Who Owns Your Copylefted Copyrights</a>, which garnered a lot of great community conversations. In another vein, Sage Sharp of Outreachy wrote a tremendous piece titled <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/apr/20/how-to-apologize/">So you want to apologize… Now what?</a>, which has helped explain the entire life cycle apologizing for your own behavior. We can all learn from this piece about how to act more humanely in our shared spaces of production.</p>
 

	
 
<p>This was another long year of online conferences. While the traveling was easier (by not doing it), we miss the face to face relationship building that we've come to expect from our big conference gatherings. We can't wait to get back to a sense of normalcy and at least have a little less latency between us.</p>
 
<p>Karen, our executive director, gave two keynotes this year, one at the <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/news/2021/mar/23/karen-lailec-2021/">Leuven AI Law & Ethics Conference</a> and another at <a href="https://conf.linuxappsummit.org/event/3/contributions/71/">Linux App Summit</a>. Karen also spoke with Marina Zhurakhinskaya at All Things Open about the 10+ year history of Outreachy. She was also an invited speaker at <a href="https://heales.org/2021/05/28/conference-big-data-a-i-and-healthy-longevity-how-to-progress-faster-and-better-for-all-scientists-thursday-september-9-2021/">Big Data, A.I. and Healthy Longevity.  How to progress faster and better for all scientists</a>.</p>
 
<p>Karen and Bradley were also co-organizers (with others) of the Legal & Policy Devroom at FOSDEM, where they also moderated panels and spoke. Sage Sharp spoke at the <a href="https://chanzuckerberg.com/eoss/">Chan Zuckerberg Essential Open Source</a> event. Daniel Pono Takamori gave a talk about <a href="http://pdxlinux.org/2021-07-01-FreeSoftware-LegacyOfCommunication.pdf">"How Free Software Continues the Legacy of Open Communication"</a> to the Portland Linux/ Unix Group.</p>
 

	
 
<p>We were also a sponsor of the fantastic <a href="https://seagl.org/">SeaGL</a> event. A community focused conference that does an incredible job giving opportunities to first-time speakers (suitable for community members of all walks of life). They hosted their conference on the Matrix platform, which further proved it's possible to run a virtual conference with free software.</p>

<p>We are beyond thankful for ability to continue our work due to your financial contributions. We recognize that not everyone has the same financial leeway to donate as they have in the past. But please consider giving what you can so that our organization can continue to advocate and support the rights of all software users. We will continue to work as hard as we can with our small staff. And we hope that through our hard work, creativity and passionate dedication, we've demonstrated over the years how Software Freedom Conservancy continues to be the beacon of change for software freedom that the world needs. <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/donate/">Please consider donating here.</a></p>
