There is a philosophical/ freedom correlation between freedoms to copy
music and to copy software. AIUI, RMS believes there is a strong basic
support in younger people for freedom to copy music. He is talking music
to tap into that support to bring together those supporting music copying 
and free software.

The video recording will be available in free formats from the LSE web site
soon. I will have a copy either from the camera I had today or from LSE
directly. I believe the LSE recording will be better so will use that if I
get the required rights delegated.

I am sure RMS would like to discuss any better systems of arranging things
for semi-professional musicians.
