The Dangers of Software Patents
by Matt Lee published Dec 20, 2006 last modified Jan 02, 2007 04:00 PM — filed under:
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. There is no registration or fee and the public is encouraged to attend. Location: Drexel University, Bossone Auditorium, Building 7A, 3141 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. (Directions at: http://www.drexel.edu/em/directions/map_uc.html)

The FSF's Hardware Endorsement Program
by Brett Smith published Oct 07, 2011 last modified Oct 07, 2011 03:55 PM
Buying hardware that plays well with free software has long been tricky business, even for us here at the FSF -- for a while now, we've done our best to collect information about devices that require only free software drivers in our Hardware Directory. Unfortunately, these recommendations are often hard to follow and go out of date quickly.
