Copyright vs. Community

(Brescia, Italy, from Sep 12, 2008 05:00 PM to Sep 12, 2008 06:30 PM)

Brescia, Italy. Presso l'Accademi Adi Belle Arti, via D. Vender (+39 030 380894). 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.

Wellington, New Zealand. Victoria University, Pipitea Campus, room GBLT2. Richard Stallman will explain how software patents obstruct software development.

This speech will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend.
