Foundation for a Free Information
Infrastructure - UK Chapter


Welcome to FFII UK

FFII UK is the UK Chapter of the Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure (FFII), a pan European network of programmers, academics, lawyers and companies defending a healthy competition in the field of software development.

Mainly known for defeating the CII / software patent directive at the European Parliament in 2005, FFII has been campaigning over the past fifteen years to protect innovation against patent inflation.

While FFII mostly focuses on European and International regulations, such as ACTA and TTIP, FFII UK seeks to educate British citizens about legal and political issues affecting their digital environment.
