@brawaru Free software (or FOSS, for a wider umbrella) but yeah.
The decision to give up part of your rights as an author and distribute something as free software is a decision to either subvert (copyleft) or completely ignore (permissive licensing) the established copyright institutions in the interest of changing the way people live and do stuff. This is, in itself, a political decision. It has to do with rights, and power, and interests of individuals and groups (and even classes) of people.
And the collective of people making the same political decision is the definition of a political movement.
I just don't see how it's supposed to be "not about politics". Not *all* politics is our concern, that is true. But "being apolitical" is almost always a lie.
