Venezuela's new pro-GPL software purchasing policy.
"Apparently, from now on all software purchased by or developed for the
government must be licensed under the GPL. Even software used for Internet
access to e-government must run GPL'd apps on a GPL'd operating system.
Reasons for the switch include a desire to promote the local development
community rather than enriching those in bondage to foreign software
behemoths, and of course assisting in the good work of stamping out
unlicensed software from government bureaux.
