First there is Gartner, which in a new report tries to reduce the openness of documents used in EU countries. A new published report advices to open up to 'recognized' standards. Luckily there is a website available were you can sign a petition and has contact information available for European Commission. Don't hesitate and put your digital signature on the list.

Next, we have a troublesome report from the BSA. In this document they list the best countries for IT development & innovation. We all know that the BSA contains a bunch of closed source, proprietary software vendors. In one topic of the report they mention that the US has wonderful worked out IP protection laws and that they have the best software patents system of all countries. Naturally they are dissing China and India for the same reasons. All OSS fanatics know how innovative patents can work.
