Stallman stomping in Europe for software freedom

Author: JT Smith

From IDG.net: "Civil liberties are under attack in Europe in the form of software legislation and cyber-crime codes,
open source software guru Richard Stallman (ed. note: RMS won't appreciate being called an open source anything, but we didn't say it, IDG did...) warned this weekend.

Stallman called on like-minded Europeans to organize themselves to fight the new legislation,
speaking at a two-day conference hosted by the Flemish Free University of Brussels.

"It is going to be necessary to organize yourselves politically to change government policy," he told a
packed auditorium of students and Linux devotees Saturday."
