<a href="">April
(question and answer were in French)</a></p>
<p>In France, a work group was set to ask the UNESCO to schedule free
software as world human heritage.</p>
<p>RMS: What that means exactly?</p>
<p>It would be a official recognition from UNESCO who is an
international organisation that free software is a world human heritage and
should be protected as art work, like say, statues.</p>
<p>RMS: Protected from software patents ?</p>
<p>Protected from everything, from appropriation in general. What do you
think of this initiative?</p>
<p>RMS: As a general idea, it seems OK to me. It is really a human
heritage. As a legal decision, I'd see the exact implications before giving
an opinion. Because on details there could be problems. It is a question of
details. That's why I asked what that means exactly. Because if it is a
general idea, no problem, if it is a legal decision with specific
consequences, one should see what will happen.</p></li>
