A Free Digital Society: What Makes Digital Inclusion Good Or Bad?

Speaker:  Richard Stallman – Boston, MA, United States
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy

Abstract

There are many threats to freedom in the digital society. They include massive surveillance, censorship, digital handcuffs, nonfree software that controls users, and the War on Sharing. Other threats come from use of web services. Finally, we have no positive right to do anything in the Internet; every activity is precarious, and can continue only as long as companies are willing to cooperate with it.
