FSFE wants to better protect free software licenses from bankruptcy

The Free Software Foundation Europe is working on an interesting problem:
what happens to free software licenses when the rights holder goes
bankrupt? The organization currently is pushing a change to German bankruptcy
law in particular: "The clause ensures that
Free Software licensing model would not be negatively affected by a
bankruptcy of a licensing rights holder. It makes it clear that any
offer to grant Free Software license made before the licensor's
bankruptcy can be accepted by anyone even after the bankruptcy
proceedings started."
