The Free Software Foundation of India has represented to the Technology
bodies of the Government of India that all technology developed through
publicly funded research should be available to anyone free of cost so
that all manufacturers will have a level playing ground as far as
technology is concerned. Since the development has been publicly funded,
it is only reasonable that the public gets the benefit out of it. The
Government has not responded, nor has this been discussed in any other
public forum. But I think this should be a first step.

knowledge politics around the world - in regard to the formation of
information commons that allow widespread participation in this ultimate
