"Richard Stallman preaches a message to a congregation of about
200 Australian programmers. It's a tough sell."
"Stallman, who in 1985 founded the Free Software Foundation
(www.gnu.org) to empower users by encouraging programmers to open
their source code for review, challenges his audience to throw away
years of "propaganda". The propaganda he referred to are the
copyright laws that Australia and other countries are bound to by
"Stallman - on a speaking tour of Australia - believes laws
drafted and enacted to promote innovation at the dawn of the
printing press have since been perverted to give intellectual
property creators a free lunch."
