Stallman On the UK Digital Economy Bill

superapecommando submitted a blog entry written by Stallman about the UKs bandwidth initiatives. RMS says “When I read about Gordon Brown’s plan to give the UK more broadband, I couldn’t restrain my laughter. Isn’t this the same clown now busy circumventing democracy to take away broadband from Britons who already have it? And what good would broadband do them if they’re punished for using it (or even being suspected of using it)? Laying cables would be a waste of resources if people are not allowed to use them.
Brown did suggest another possible use for broadband. He said that it would enable MPs to better communicate with their constituents and keep track of what they want.”
