Distributed campaigns for promoting and defending freedom in digital societies

Sharing experience about campaigning on the political field in France

j. Zimmermann

A presentation of a few successful campaigns in France lead by libre software activists for defending freedom in a digital world: bringing awareness of the politicians about the dangers of the EUCD transposition and DRM, and their economical, social and political impact and influencing the candidates at a presidential election to talk about Libre Software, software patents, DRM, etc. How did we do that? What have we learned? Maybe for political action _too_, sharing is a way of just doing it better.
