    About The Book

    This collection includes historical writings such as The GNU Manifesto, which defined and launched the activist Free Software Movement, along with new writings on hot topics in copyright, patent law, and the controversial issue of “trusted computing.”

    Stallman takes a critical look at common abuses of copyright law and

    patents when applied to computer software programs, and how these

    abuses damage our entire society and remove our existing freedoms. He

    also discusses the social aspects of software and how free software

    can create community and social justice.

    Given the current turmoil in copyright and patent laws, including

    the DMCA and proposed CBDTPA, these essays are more relevant than

    ever. Stallman tackles head-on the essential issues driving the

    current changes in copyright law. He argues that for creativity to

    flourish, software must be free of inappropriate and overly-broad

    legal constraints. Over the past twenty years his arguments and

    actions have changed the course of software history; this new book is

    sure to impact the future of software and legal policies in the years

    to come.

    Lawrence Lessig, the author of two well-known books on similar topics,

    writes the introduction. He is a noted legal expert on copyright law

    and a Stanford Law School professor.
