Internet Freedom and Playful Cleverness

In this latest episode of the Keiser Report, software freedom activist Richard Stallman  equates  the term “hacking” with “playful cleverness” and has some  interesting things  to say about  the unlawful ways governments are trying to prevent people from engaging in file sharing of published works.

He is critical of “Apple”, whom he calls the” pioneers in designing computers who restrict their users in a kind of virtual jail  and compares digital protest like “anonymous” with real world protest against governments who do not serve the people but the evil corporate empire and are trying to crush dissent, giving the crackdown on the Occupy movement as a major example.

Lots of good stuff here.
