Just for the record, in a response to my earlier posting about free software and copyright law, Richard Stallman sent me the following:
I am disappointed that you describe my work as "open source", because I disagree with that camp and I constantly struggle against the misinformation which labels my work that way. You might as well call my work "Republican". For instance, this sentence
Stallman understands this thoroughly though the vast majority of commentators on the open source movement have missed this point.
is likely to lead readers to suppose erroneously that I am a supporter of the open source movement, ewhen in fact I disagree with it fundamentally.
See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html for an explanation of this disagreement.
Would you please replace "open source" with "free software" in this posting about my work?
