"This is the sixth day of an email dialogue with Richard
Stallman on the philosophy of copyright that will be published over
nine days on LinuxPlanet. This dialogue arose from comments that

> Where's the freedom, when they have no choice but to
[Stallman]: You must have misunderstood what I said. I do
not believe anyone should be forced to cooperate. I believe
everyone should be free to cooperate; specifically, free to
share and change software. To secure this freedom for you, we
must stop anyone from taking it away from you--by copyrights or by
any other means."
