Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Jul 28, 2008 last modified Jul 29, 2008 03:01 PM — filed under:
Wellington, New Zealand. Level 2, Council Chambers, Wellington Town Hall, 111 Wakefield Street, Wellington, New Zealand. 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 speech will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend. RSVP required.

The Danger of Software Patents
by Matt Lee published May 12, 2008 last modified May 13, 2008 10:25 AM — filed under:
Tamkang University, 5, Lane 199,Kinghua Street, Taipei ,Taiwan 10650, R.O.C. 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. Registration is required.
