There are also questions about the storage of data that is on servers in the USA, Russia and the European Economic Area. For example, IP addresses are stored identifiable for a day before they are hashed and then stored on servers for a year. The new policy also prohibits people under the age of 13 from using the software, which as FOSS Post points out, is a violation of the GPL license used by Audacity.
The open source community was understandably upset by these changes. Fortunately, Audacity is open source software and is most likely being steered in a different direction, perhaps by a different name, by the community. That is left to the Muse Group to develop Audacity itself, rather than being able to capitalize on (and exploit) the hard work of the open source community.
