Richard Stallman: 'Apple has tightest digital handcuffs in history'

jrepin writes "One of the greatest hackers of all time, Richard Stallman is something of a roving prophet for the free software movement. He invented the first ‘copyleft license’ that made the results of his mammoth feats of computer programming free to use, share and change — without falling foul of copyright. Stallman now travels the world making the argument that software should be treated as public knowledge and warning of threats to civil liberties in an increasingly digitized world. Hazel Healy speaks to free software’s moral compass about Anonymous, licensing and digital freedoms."
