When Jun 06, 2014

from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Where Cluj-Napoca, Romania
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 by Richard Stallman will be part of Fundația Ceata's local-teams tour, which will include stops for him in Rm. Vâlcea and in Chișinău, as well. Please see his events page for information on those speeches and for details on the keynote speech he will be giving at the Fundația Ceata--organized Coliberator conference, in Bucharest.

Fundația Ceata is a Romanian foundation promoting Free Software and Free Culture and aligned with the philosophy of the GNU Project. RMS was the guest of honor at its launch, in Bucharest, in February 2013.

This talk will be nontechnical, admission is gratis, and the public is encouraged to attend.
