Today the Organic Design team went to the University of Auckland to attend Richard Stallman's lecture on free software and digital restrictions management. He explained that the copyright system we have in place today was designed in a time when only publishing companies could afford to print material and that it was never intended to impede the ability for individuals to share information amongst themselves. Further than this he states that to deliberately impede a society's ability to share information and knowledge is immoral and should not be tolerated by the people.
