Free as in freedom, or FAIF, is a description or slogan to describe the freedom to use and share software code, written knowledge or other aspects of knowledge and culture.

It is used largely by proponents of "free culture", especially by those who feel that the terms "open source" and "open license" fail to emphasize this essential aspect of freedom.
