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

The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while oppressing 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.

Event C source code header Copyright vs. Community in the Age of Computer Networks Feb 21, 2007 from 04:00 PM to 05:00 PM University of California - Berkeley, by Matt Lee
This speech will be accessible to all and the public is encouraged to attend. 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.

Professor Moglen is currently a Professor of Law and Legal History at Columbia Law School as well as the General Counsel for the Free Software Foundation. "Free software puts in the hands of users the rules about packet distribution in the devices and networks that the software powers. That means free software plays a smaller or larger role in the determination of media concentration, according as users have more or less control over the network that envelopes their lives. Media concentrators know this to be true, and are adversaries of free software. I will describe how we will fight back, and win."

On Friday, June 29, at 12 noon (EDT), the Free Software Foundation will officially release the GNU GPL version 3. Please, join us in celebration as we bring to a close eighteen months of public outreach and comment in revision of the world's most popular free software license. Beyond the creation of an improved license, the process of drafting version 3 has helped highlight vital issues for the community of free software users. This is a moment to thank both the thousands who participated by commenting on the license and those who represented stakeholders through the GPLv3 committee process. Now, with the release of GPLv3, we will see new defenses extended to free software. These defenses will continue the long history of fighting all efforts to make free software proprietary. Please, join us as we stream live footage of Richard Stallman announcing GPLv3 from Noon (EDT) at www.fsf.org. If you are in the Boston area you can also join us at the FSF offices from 11:30am. Please let us know at <info@fsf.org> if you would like to attend. -- Peter T. Brown Executive Director Free Software Foundation 51 Franklin St. 5th Floor Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
