hpr0490 :: TIT Radio Ep 13.1ec

Released on 2009-12-02 under a CC-BY-NC-SA license.
From PC Radio Show website:
"Our guest was Richard Stallman, the man behind GNU and the Free Software Foundation. He condemns the Amazon Kindle (his term for it is the "swindle") because it takes away freedoms that readers of hardcopy books enjoy. Freedoms such as the ability to lend a book to a friend, to borrow one from a library, to buy one anonymously by paying cash, to keep a book as long as we like and to give it away. The Amazon Kindle implements DRM - digital rights management - to restrict your use of books. He is not against eBook readers per se, just the DRM, which in addition to the above also requires you to run proprietary software to read eBooks. He urged listeners to go to Defectivebydesign.org and sign up to participate in his protests."

The complete episode from July 22nd can be found here.

Ending Song: Free Software Song by Mr. Jono Bacon (Ubuntu Community Manager)
