Stallman speaks in Copenhagen

Posted in opensuse, software_freedom by mschlander on 26/04/2013

This week the founder of the GNU project and the Free Software Foundation, Richard Stallman (RMS) gave two presentations at the Technical University of Denmark. The events were organized by KLID.

On Wednesday the topic was Copyright vs. Community. Discussing the history of copyright, how it is being extended and (mis)used, and how Richard Stallman proposes to reform copyright.

On Thursday night the topic was A Free Digital Society. Covering a wide range of topics including privacy, censorship, electronic voting, software freedom, DRM and streaming services, software patents, services as a software substitution and also the EU Unitary Patent.

Here is Stallman auctioning off a plush GNU at the end of the talk. My apologies for the poor photo.


As always it was a very interesting and entertaining experience. Video recordings were made and should be up on the KLID website before too long. If you can’t wait, you can download other audio and video recordings of Stallman’s speeches here:

Stallman also gave away stickers and sold various other items for the support of the FSF.
