Generally speaking I share Richard Stallman's opinion, but I'm not sure
whether Copyright was a good idea. But you can't alter the past and now
it's time to abolish such laws, because they inhibit a more effective
production by factitious stringency and therefore allow everyone to
take part in cultural development. But fighting against the culture
industry - an industry that is producing "culture" like a factory produces
commodities - is a difficult challenge.
Does the FSF Europe send such great articles to politicians who are making
decisions about Digital Restrictions Management? I think it would be a
valuable addition for their world view and their small world.
