We've just written to the European Commission to let them know that distributing Free Software without charging a fee isn't "predatory pricing": http://ur1.ca/et4b8

thanks! it might have been good to mention alphabets, languages, and other such human creations that are shared free of charge to make the point stronger

Good point, will bear it in mind. OTOH, we wanted to stay specific to competition issues, and the letter is long enough as it is. Plus FairSearch's claim is so ridiculous that it nearly falls into the "not even wrong" category.

Wow, thanks for doing this. I always find it confusing and frustrating when a group mistakes the collective creative power and interest of a community for business. They are kit the same thing. Free software is to software as education is to business; mistaking one for the other does both a great disservice
