The creator of MySQL, Michael "Monty" Widenius, has started an urgent campaign to help save MySQL from Oracle's clutches.  In his blog, http://monty-says.blogspot.com/2009/12/help-saving-mysql.html he provides details on the dangers to the open-source MySQL in the acquisition by Oracle of Sun Microsystems.

An online petition in 18 languages is available at http://www.helpmysql.org along with background details of the acquisition by Oracle and the risks to the open-source MySQL.
