The Danger of Software Patents

(Rogivo, Italy, from Sep 26, 2007 02:30 PM to Sep 26, 2007 04:30 PM)

Location: "Rigolin" room, CEn.Ser Rovigo Fiere, Viale Porta Adige, 45, 45100, Rovigo, Italy. 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 talk will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend. If you register at http://www.opensourceexpo.it, for 15.00 EUR you will have access to the entire expo and will receive a complimentary gift bag.

Software Freedom Day: Boston

(Boston, MA, from Sep 15, 2007 01:00 PM to Sep 15, 2007 05:00 PM)

On the afternoon of September 15, 2007, the Free Software Foundation and BinaryFreedom (http://binaryfreedom.info) are hosting a Software Freedom Day (http://softwarefreedomday.org) event in downtown Boston. Please bring your friends and join us for talks, activities and outreach in support of software freedom. We'll be one node in a network of over 290 events worldwide, and it's not often we get the chance to make that kind of splash. It'll be a great chance to meet other hackers and activists in the area and to make plans for how we can work for software freedom on a concrete, local level. Let us know that you can come by emailing info@fsf.org, and keep up-to-date or even help us plan the schedule at http://groups.fsf.org/index.php/Boston_Software_Freedom_Day.

Copyright vs. Community.

(San Francisco, CA, from Sep 13, 2007 06:00 PM to Sep 13, 2007 07:30 PM)

Detailed location: Science 210, 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA. 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 hosted by the Computer Science Department of San Francisco State University. The talk will be accessible to all audiences and the public is encouraged to attend.
