Videocast: Richard Stallman in New Zealand

Free software leader addresses copyright at Auckland University

Richard Stallman's tour of New Zealand has covered issues of copyright and the free software movement. He is fervently against restrictions on sharing, saying such restrictions are an attack on society.

In this must-hear speech on copyright, Stallman introduces the foundation principles of the Free Software movement and then discusses the origins, uses and abuses of the laws of copyright.

Richard Stallman has asked that we present this in a free and unencumbered format as to do otherwise would create a conflict between his message and our medium.
