LXer: Free Software leader slams NZ copyright

Published at LXer:

The leader of the Free Software movement, Richard Stallman, is calling New Zealand’s copyright laws unjust and plans to use an upcoming tour of the country to rouse opposition to them. Stallman, the founder of the GNU project and of the Free Software Foundation, says New Zealand’s copyright laws place restrictions on distributing certain free software packages. Specifically, these enable users to “escape from digital handcuffs (also known as Digital Restrictions Management or DRM)”, he says. “New Zealand’s law does not go as far as the DMCA in the US, but it is unjust nonetheless,” he says.
