From PC Radio Show website:"Our guest was Richard Stallman, the man behind GNU and the Free Software Foundation. He condems the Amazon Kindle (his term for it is the "swindle")because it takes away freedoms that readers of hardcopy books enjoy.Freedoms such as the ability to lend a book to a friend, to borrow onefrom a library, to buy one anonymously by paying cash, to keep a bookas long as we like and to give it away. The Amazon Kindle implements DRM- digital rights management - to restrict your use of books. He is notagainst eBook readers per se, just the DRM, which in addition to theabove also requires you to run proprietary software to read eBooks. Heurged listeners to go to Defectivebydesign.org and sign up to participate in his protests."
