Stallman Takes His Free-Software Crusade to Argentina
New York Times
Stallman said he is generally a fan of the online collaborative encyclopedia but it is on the narrow grounds that befit a single-issue activist who has spent more than two decades preaching the cause that software wants to be free ?- ?free as in freedom not free as in beer. ? Translation: It’s not necessary that software be cheap but once someone owns it she should be free to do with it what she pleases. This principle is true for Wikipedia in that anyone is free to reuse its contents in any way he likes as long as he follows the same ethic with a new product and credits Wikipedia. That applies to a blogger as well as to companies that have created businesses around Wikipedia content including one publishing house that has republished German Wikipedia content in book form while agreeing to those terms. But that is where the Stallman-Wikipedia concord begins and ends.
