Tech corporations demand "freedom" to exploit the software commons without contributing to it. To use open source communities and their volunteers as unpaid interns, while keeping the platforms they build on top of their work proprietary, and patent-encumbered. To ensure their ability to keep doing this, they run a constant PR offensive against copyleft licenses that oblige reciprocity, framing them as a denial of developer freedom (to prevent users and other developers using their freedoms).

Qualified appreciation of ProtonMail for finally making their stuff open source

However, I still strongly recommend against them, because basic access to open/standard protocols like IMAP and SMTP should never be locked down as a paid "extra"

Kind of a pre-announcement: the #activitypub implementation for #Lemmy has reached a usable state, and we are planning to start some test servers with working federation in the next days.

Before you get too excited, the implementation is still in a very early state and will take a lot more time before its ready for production. We aren't even thinking about federation with other platforms yet.
