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.

Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Apr 22, 2008 last modified Apr 22, 2008 03:52 PM — filed under:
Location: Campus Universitario di Savona, Via Magliotto 2, Savona, Italy. 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 in English, free of charge, and accessible to all audiences. The public is encouraged to attend.

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.
