We recommend this as an absolute must-see video, that is very congruent with the aims of the P2P Foundation.

This is the same video we filed under Eben Moglen on Universal Access to Knowledge, with additional quotations and information.


Description

This is an extraordinary lecture on video in which Eben Moglen, the lawyer of the Free Software Foundation, explains that we have achieved an extraordinary moment in history, in which the whole of human knowledge can be shared with everyone, at marginal reproduction costs. In this context, sharing becomes the most economically fruitful strategy, and the proprietarizing of vital knowledge becomes highly immoral. It is also a way to redistribute the world's resource without the use of coercion.
