Richard Stallman
Copyright vs. Community

Thursday, March 19
6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

C. Walsh Theatre, Suffolk University
Richard Stallman, MacArthur Fellow and President of the Free Software Foundation, argues that copyright does great harm when applied to today’s technological environment of online collaboration and peer-to-peer sharing. Developed for the age of the printing press and currently enforceable only through draconian punishments, the system infringes upon freedoms, which have become essential to network users. Stallman offers an alternative way for copyright to provide its intended benefits to the public without negating our freedoms.
