Copyright vs. Community

(Jadwisin, Poland, from May 02, 2009 11:00 AM to May 02, 2009 01:00 PM)

Jadwisin, Poland. Sala Konferencyjna Nowa, Conference and Tourist Center http://www.owjadwisin.pl/eng.shtml , 05-140 SEROCK (+48 (22) 782 7508, +48 (22) 782 6541, <jadwisin@owjadwisin.pl>. The exact time and date of Richard Stallman's talk is yet to be determined. 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 part of the Konferencja Wikimedia Polska, 2009, which will be taking place from May 1st through May 3rd.

El Peligro de las Patentes de Software

(Vigo, Spain, from Apr 30, 2009 06:45 PM to Apr 30, 2009 09:00 PM)

Vigo, Spain. Auditorio del Centro Cultural Caixanova, AV Policarpo Sanz nº13. Richard Stallman explicará como las patentes de software obstruyen el desarrollo de software. Las patentes de software son patentes que cubren las ideas del software. Ellas restringen el desarrollo del software, de modo que cada decisión del diseño trae el riesgo de conseguir ser demandado. Las patentes en otros campos restringen fábricas, pero las patentes del software restringen a cada usuario de computadora. La investigación económica demuestra que incluso retardan el progreso. La charla será gratis y accesible a todos. ¡Todos son bienvenidos! (cf. https://www.fsf.org/events/20090430vigo)

Copyright vs. Community: supporting artists while respecting freedom and society

(Boston, MA, from Mar 19, 2009 06:30 PM to Mar 19, 2009 08:00 PM)

Boston, MA. C. Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple St., Suffolk University. Copyright does great harm when applied to today¹s computer networks which facilitate online collaboration and peer-to-peer sharing. Developed for the age of the printing press and currently enforceable only through draconian punishments, the system infringes freedoms which have become essential to network users. Dr. Richard Stallman, MacArthur Fellow and president of the Free Software Foundation, offers an alternative way for copyright to provide its intended benefits to the public without negating the freedom we need. This talk will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend. The location is very close to Park St station on the MBTA Red Line. 1. Head northeast on Tremont St toward Park St 2. Turn left at Park St 3. Turn right at Beacon St 4. Turn left at Bowdoin St 5. Slight left at Derne St 6. Turn left to stay on Derne St 7.
