The Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure (FFII) is a lobbying platform for open standards in the Information Technology sector.


What we do

Most FFII members and supporters are independent software developers, patent experts, and academics who have studied the legal frameworks of property and other rights and understand their strengths and weaknesses. We monitor proposals for new laws and treaties that affect the IT sector, and we analyse these proposals and prepare responses. We research the consequences of the proposals in particular areas, and we collect results from studies conducted around the world. We make our research available to industry, to politicians, and to academia. We alert people to problems that may not yet be visible to all. We define policies. We organise conferences, meetings, reports. We work with politicians to build better laws.
