Richard Stallman

I recently went to a presentation held at the University of Alberta. There is a short write up of the talk here and here is a much more detailed write up on the presentation from 2 years ago.

Overall I found the presentation informative... but I did not see any suggested actions that would be useful for those who are upset by the way copyright law is going and want to do something about it. Besides Stallman's suggestion of boycotting products which are unlikely to be boycotted and a generic go to protests message I found the presentation lacking in the crucial area of activism.
