Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Feb 27, 2009 last modified Feb 27, 2009 01:56 PM — filed under:
Budapest, Hungary. Millenáris – Cultural Center Building B, 2nd district, Kis Rókus u. 16-20. 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. This talk will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend.

Event Copyright vs Comunidad en la Edad de las Redes de Computadoras
by Matt Lee published Nov 11, 2008 last modified Nov 12, 2008 05:29 PM — filed under:
Trujillo,Perú. Colegio de Ingenieros, ubicado en Francisco Borja Nº 250 Urb. La merced. El copyright fue desarrollado en los tiempos de la imprenta y fue diseñado para funcionar en un sistema centralizado de copia impuesto por la imprenta. Pero el sistema de copyright no funciona bien con las redes de computadoras y solamente castigos severos pueden hacerlos respetar. Las corporaciones globales que lucran del copyright estan presionando por castigos siempre más injustos, para incrementar su poder de copyright mientras restringen el acceso público a la tecnología. Pero si en realidad queremos servir al único proposito legitimo del copyright—para promover el progreso, al benefico del público—entonces necesitamos hacer cambios en la dirección contraria.

The Danger of Software Patents
by Matt Lee published Aug 04, 2008 last modified Aug 08, 2008 02:25 PM — filed under:
Wellington, New Zealand. Victoria University, Pipitea Campus, room GBLT2. Richard Stallman will explain how software patents obstruct software development. Software patents are patents that cover software ideas. They restrict the development of software, so that every design decision brings a risk of getting sued. Patents in other fields restrict factories, but software patents restrict every computer user. Economic research shows that they even retard progress. This speech will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend.
