Founder of the GNU project and president of the Free Software Foundation, Dr. Richard M. STALLMAN has been for over three decades a major global actor in advancing and promoting the rights and freedoms of the computer users, through the Free Software Movement that he initiated. A Harvard graduate of physics and a recipient of the famous MacArthur Foundation grant (the so called "genius" grant), he pioneered the concept of copyleft used in connection to the the right to use, modify and distribute free software, and is the main author of the most widely used free software license - GNU General Public License (GPL). His lecture will focus on the free software movement.

Fundaţia Ceata began its activity in June 2008 in Bucharest as an informal group. In the years that had come, Ceata has formed a diverse Romanian community with the purpose of liberating the users from restrictions in art and technology. Ceata has organized many events in Bucharest and other cities from Romania and the Republic of Moldova devoted to promoting user freedoms, as well as projects aimed at writing computer programs and art works under free licenses.

The event is free, does noes require registration and is open to everyone.
