There is a worthy campaign in Italy for the Liberalization of the sector of Software for Personal Computer. You can sign the petition (in Italian).
The campaign LiberaSW (Il computer Ã¨ mio e lo gestisco io) asks a national law containing (in a nutshell) the following points:
1) When a personal computer is sold, the price of the hardware must be stated explicitly as an independent value and it must not be incorporated with the price for the license of the (possibly present) software.
2) The buyer must be able to refuse to pay the price for the software license and pay just the price of the hardware.
3) The price of the software license must be realistic.
Is there such a law in your country? If not, maybe you could start a similar campaign for your country.
