Interesting. The FSF Europe has started a “We speak about Free Software” campaign at http://fsfeurope.org/documents/whyfs.html. There are already some companies that participate. Nice.

They do say a couple of times that the Open Source initiative failed but they do not explain very good why it failed. They should explicitly mention that The Open Source trademark does (no longer) exist and that the OSI seems to only look at the letter of the Open Source Definition which means that some Open Source licenses are actually not really Free Software licenses (such as the ASPL or the original Artistic license).
