Bare Bones Software today announced that they will donate US$10 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) for every copy of BBEdit purchased directly from them at the full retail or cross-upgrade price through December 31, 2002. “We have tremendous respect for the EFF’s role as a defender of civil liberties in the electronic age,” said Rich Siegel, founder, president and CEO of Bare Bones Software. “We are proud of the part our products play in their mission, and we’re pleased to offer our material support of their efforts.” Ren Bucholz, EFF Activist, said, “We are thrilled that Bare Bones is supporting the EFF. We’ve been using BBEdit for years, and it’s terrific to know that they make great products and care about civil liberties.” BBEdit 7.0 sells for $179 for the retail version or $119 for the cross-upgrade.
