I also strongly support this.  Having discussed licence compliance with
Bradley on a couple of occasions where I had purchased products from
companies that used Linux and were not complying with the licences
(Avocent and Onkyo to name two of them), he does a fantastic job on
such a small budget.

Unfortunately in both these cases the companies were able to continue
their licence non-compliance because neither of us had the time or
resources to pursue the issues further (both companies refused to
comply so legal action was the only way forward), so any additional
funding for the Software Freedom Conservancy is money well spent for
anyone who believes in software freedom.
