# The <b>Libera</b><span>Manifesto</span>
_libera: (Latin) free, independent, unrestricted._
## A Manifesto for Open Source and Free Services
As developers and maintainers of Open Source Software and Free Services, we the Liberati felt it was time to share basic truths with the rest of the world. A world where hobbyists and businesses alike run on what we provide and what we have built. Too often, we fall victim to gross misconceptions. The Libera Manifesto intends to speak for those who provide something online for free.
This manifesto was published to expose a silent perspective – one which most Internet users cannot see outright. These are not absolute truths, merely concepts to which many "freebie" providers adhere and are compiled from.
