After a long hiatus, Brother Rice floor hockey is finally going to be back, taking place on to be announced dates. Intramural floor hockey is a great way to have fun amongst friends while competing for the prized title of floor hockey champion!

The Software Freedom Conservancy, a non-profit organization that defends breaches of open source software contracts, has accused the Trump Media and Technology Group of breaching the Gnu Affero GPL version 3 (AGPLv3).

APGLv3 is an example of a copyleft license, meaning that any user has the right to modify the base software as long as it follows stipulations left from the base software. In this case, Trump’s group based the Truth Social platform off of Mastodon, a free open source platform for self-hosting social media platforms, which is licensed under APGLv3.
