Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Feb 27, 2008 last modified Mar 04, 2008 03:48 PM — filed under:
Location: Moscow, Volkhonka street, 14/5, 2nd floor, room 205 ("Krasny Zal"). 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 Les Enclosures des Biens Communs: du Vivant aux Logiciels
by Matt Lee published Feb 01, 2008 last modified Feb 25, 2008 08:15 AM — filed under:
Conférence organisée par l'association BELLGNULINUX. LIEUX: LA CANTINE, 151 rue Montmartre, 12 passage Montmartre Galerie des Panoramas, 75002 Paris (http://lacantine.org/ ). THEME DE LA CONFERENCE: Les enclosures des biens communs : du vivant aux logiciels. Par Richard Stallman et Jean-Pierrre Berlan. Richard Stallman a lancé le développement du système d'exploitation GNU (utilisé dans la combinaison GNU-Linux), et spécifiquement de la Licence Publique Générale GNU (GNU GPL). Il est aussi le fondateur de la Free Software Foundation. Jean-Pierrre Berlan est un ancien Directeur de recherche en agronomie à l'INRA. Il participe activement, aux côtés de la Confédération Paysanne, au débat sur les soi-disant OGM et le brevetage du vivant, par une réflexion critique sur les biotechnologies qu'il accuse d'être devenues des sciences de la mort. Les "enclosures" désignent le mouvement d'expropriation des terres dévolues à l'usage collectif qui s'est déroulé sur plusieurs siècles et a précédé et préparé la Révolution industrielle. Le concept de « nouvelles enclosures » désigne par analogie la captation de biens communs par l'invention par les juristes des multinationales de nouveaux "droits" divers de « propriété sur le vivant » (gènes, plantes, animaux), sur les connaissances comme les algorithmes des logiciels, créant des monopoles qui cachent les effets et les conditions de chacun d'eux, derrière la fausse généralisation et l'escroquerie sémantique de l'expression « propriété intellectuelle ». De nouvelles lois, comme « La loi de lutte contre la contrefaçon », mensongère à plus d'un titre, votée au Sénat le 17 octobre 2007, permettra à des agents assermentés d'organismes professionnels privés (semenciers, industrie du disque, Business Software Alliance) d'apporter la preuve de la matérialité des "infractions", en ayant le droit d'enquêter, y compris sur Internet, en étant à la fois juge et partie. Des pratiques sociales, professionnelles, culturelles telles que l'informatique ou la reproduction du vivant, qui n'avaient a priori rien à voir entre elles, se retrouvent encapuslées dans de mêmes dispositifs juridiques : « les nouvelles enclosures ». C'est ainsi que les agriculteurs sont en train de devenir des « contrefacteurs » puisque produire en agriculture, c'est inévitablement reproduire, et du fait de l'extension du droit de brevet au vivant, c'est reproduire ce qui « appartient à autrui ». Pour Richard Stallman : « toutes les libertés dépendent de la liberté informatique, elle n'est pas plus importante que les autres libertés fondamentales mais, au fur et à mesure que les pratiques de la vie basculent sur l'ordinateur, on en aura besoin pour maintenir les autres libertés. Profitant de la faiblesse de la démocratie contemporaine, les grandes entreprises sont en train de prendre le contrôle de l'Etat, ce sont elles qui contrôlent les lois, pas les citoyens. Ça a commencé avec le Digital Millenium Copyright Act aux Etats-Unis, puis elles ont imposé des directives européennes dans leur intérêt ». Une meilleure connaissance des enjeux du logiciel libre peut-elle apporter des éléments d'analyse, de réflexion et de réponse ? Pour quelles convergences ?
