project, the Free Software Foundation, and the League for Programming
Freedom. He also invented the concept of copyleft to protect the
ideals of this movement, and enshrined this concept in the widely used
GPL (General Public Licence) for software. He is the author of 'Free
as in Freedom' and will be signing copies of his book and meeting
attendees at the end of the lecture.
