Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Oct 03, 2007 last modified Nov 13, 2007 12:38 PM — filed under:
Detailed location: Universidade de São Paulo - USP Escola Politecnica - Predio da Engenharia Civil Av. Prof. Almeida Prado, trav.2 nº. 83 Auditorio 136, Sao Paulo, 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. This speech will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend.

El Peligro de las Patentes de Software
by Matt Lee published Jul 26, 2007 last modified Sep 04, 2007 03:45 PM — filed under:
Location: Hotel Ramada Herradura, Autopista General Cañas, cruce San Antonio de Belén, frente a Mall Cariari, Heredia, Costa Rica. (Phone: + 50 6 2099 800) 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 part of the Conferencia Latinoamericana de Informatica CLEI 2007 (comprising Conferencia Latinoamericana de Informatica CLEI 2007, XV Congreso Iberoamericano de Educacion Superio en Computacion CIESC 2007, Latin American Networking Conference LANC 2007, Taller Latinoamericano de Informatica para la Biodiversidad INBI 2007) which will take place from the 9th to the 12th of October.
