Blog Entry Troff document When a company asks for your copyright
by Richard Stallman published Sep 29, 2010 last modified Feb 21, 2018 10:55 AM
Companies that develop free software and release it under the GNU GPL sometimes distribute some copies of the code in other ways. If they distribute the exact same code under a different license to certain users that pay for this, typically permitting including the code in proprietary programs, we call it "selling exceptions". If they distribute some version of the code solely in a proprietary manner, we call that releasing a purely proprietary version of the program.

Blog Entry Visit to La Paz, Part II (2004-08-12 to 2004-08-17)
by Richard Stallman published Aug 17, 2004 last modified Jul 12, 2010 02:39 PM
On my next-to-last day in La Paz, I went to see the ancient ruins of Tiwanaku, and Lake Titicaca. My hosts and I hired a taxi for the whole day--it was the only way to go. When we got to Tiwanaku, we took a little too long eating lunch, which forced us to hurry a bit visiting the ruins and the museum.

Blog Entry Venezuela, Colombia and Mexico (2004-11-15 to 2004-12-01)
by Richard Stallman published Dec 01, 2004 last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:22 PM
I spent a week in Venezuela, giving a speech and some interviews at an event which invited speakers from all across Latin America. During the event, the state oil company PDVSA announced its decision to switch 100% to free software. Their decision is not based on convenience or cost; it is based on sovereignty. Their computers used to be handled by a US company, SAIC. When opponents of President Chavez tried to drive him from office by shutting down oil protection, the US government helped out by telling SAIC to prevent them from using their computers. PDVSA therefore knows from experience that using non-free software means you are at the mercy of the developers, and has decided to solve the problem for good and all.
