Blog Entry chemical/x-pdb April fools! Apple sues Free Software Foundation for trademark infringement
by Free Software Foundation published Apr 01, 2016 last modified Apr 01, 2016 05:22 PM
Post-publication note: this is an April fools post. None of it is true. Well, except the part about Apple actually mistreating users, attacking competing firms and barring GPL-protected software from their app store.

Blog Entry Australia, Malaysia, Jakarta (2004-10-03 to 2004-10-22)
by Richard Stallman published Oct 22, 2004 last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:11 PM
I was invited to Australia so as to speak at the Builder conference, which was canceled shortly before I got there (but they had already bought my tickets). This did not mean the visit was wasted, since I had arranged 9 other speeches. The Australian Senate had attached some conditions to the US-Australia Free Trade Agreement, and it looked like the US might reject the treaty as a result, which would give Australia a second chance to escape. I arranged to give several speeches about the danger of software patents.

At its core, I think of free software as about the ability of computer users to take control of their technology. Insofar as our software defines our experience of the world and each other, software freedom is an important part of what allows us to determine the way we live, work, and communicate.

L’essence du logiciel libre est selon moi de permettre aux utilisateurs de micro-informatique d’être maître de leur machine et de leurs données. Dans la mesure où nos logiciels définissent notre rapport au monde et aux autres, la liberté logicielle est une part importante de ce qui nous permet de déterminer notre façon de vivre, de travailler et de communiquer.
