Franklin Street Statement PDF

The Franklin Street Statement can be found on the web in the form of a fairly ugly blog post, which does not befit a document of such importance… and for that matter, neither does the printed form of that page.

I wanted a nice paper copy of the statement to put in a prominent position on my desk, and figured it would make sense to share my rendering. It may be an interesting thing to hand out at developer conferences or Software Freedom Day events.

The document is set in Free typefaces, Liberation Serif and League Gothic — appropriate, given that League is a wonderful Free alternative to Franklin Gothic! I know, I know, you see what I did there. Now… Download the Franklin Street Statement PDF!

Note: I wish the source ODF had survived the wrath of’s “eat my document” crash recovery feature, but at least the resulting PDF is fairly easy to edit. 🙂

  1. I love it! I’m going to print it out and put it over my desk, too.

    Thank you. I’ve been looking across numerous websites for this statement, and could not find it as they all linked to the original site (, which currently (for me at least) is not responding. I’m glad that at least one site has a copy of this!
