RMS, previously, on Sun freeing java

   There was a time when RMS would press to ensure that his interviews
   only be available if the be available in patent-free codecs, like
   Ogg Vorbis and Ogg Theora. I was half expecting that to be the case
   here, but apparently not :-(

He still does that, and quite strongly.  But being a public figure,
one cannot dictate who will and will not record your speech.  But
baseless accusation like these are not useful, instead lets ask Sun to
provide a free format that everyone can view.

Does anyone know where one can ask the Sun folks about putting up a
copy of that movie that in a free format?  And ideally removing the
non-free format one.
