Richard Stallman, the founder of the Free Software Foundation and author of the current license, sat down with eWEEK Senior Editor Peter Galli at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to talk about his aims, hopes and wishes for the new license.

We're talking about content protection. I know you were just being precise; however, regardless of whether content protection involves CSS or other forms of rights management, that's pretty irrelevant. The basic point is the same: Despite the fact that DVDs employ content protection, sales have exploded. That completely blows away the original post that argued that content protection supresses the market.
