Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Oct 22, 2007 last modified Nov 12, 2007 03:40 PM — filed under:
Detailed location: Unieuro Library, SCES trecho O, Conjunto 5, Avenia das Nacoes, CEP 70.200-001, Brasilia, Brazil. Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright—to promote progress, for the benefit of the public—then we must make changes in the other direction.

Event El Software Libre en la Etica y la Practica
by Matt Lee published Apr 08, 2008 last modified Apr 08, 2008 04:49 PM — filed under:
Direccion: Aula Magna del Aulario Averroes, Campus Universitario Rabanales, Ctra Madrid-Cadiz km. 396 A, Cordoba, Spain. Richard Stallman hablará sobre las metas y la filosofía del movimiento del Software Libre, y el estado y la historia del sistema operativo GNU, el cual conjuntamente con el núcleo Linux ahora es utilizado por decenas de millones de usuarios en todo el mundo. Las corporaciones globales que se benefician del copyright están planeando come hacer castigos draconianos, y aumentan la energía del copyright, mientras que suprime el acceso público a la tecnología. Pero si nosotros seriamente esperamos responder al único propósito legítimo del copyright -- de promover el progreso, para el beneficio del publico -- entonces debemos realizar cambios en otra dirección.

Location: C4, hus C, campus Valla, Linkoeping University, Linkoeping, Sweden. Richard Stallman will talk on the issue of copyright, a system developed in the age of the printing press designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press, but which does not fit well with computer networks. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright--to promote progress, for the benefit of the public--then we must make changes in the other direction. Richard Stallman will also suggest changes to the Pirate Party program, in order to avoid the unintended consequence of giving proprietary software an advantage over free software.
