Today FSFE has launched a new campaign to remove advertising of proprietary 
PDF readers from government websites.

Campaign: http://www.fsfe.org/campaigns/pdfreaders

Petition: http://www.fsfe.org/campaigns/pdfreaders/petition.en.html

The campaign is targeting European government websites that advertise or 
require non-Free software, and particularly endorsements and links to Adobe 
Acrobat Reader.

We will encourage the public to find and report to us websites that contain 
such adverts, list them all publicly, and encourage signing of a petition to 
end this practice.

There is a prize for groups and individuals who report the largest number of 
infringing websites. At the end of the campaign the petition will be sent by 
post to all the institutions involved.

At a period after the petitions have been sent we shall review the infringing 
sites to see if the problems have been rectified, and if not we shall publicly 
pursue them to seek a resolution.

We have already received significant press coverage of this event, and over two 
hundred bugs have been submitted in the last few hours.

If you would like more information about this campaign, please don't hesitate 
to get in touch.

Kind Regards,

Sam Tuke
