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