Submission + - Does Richard Stallman Hate Fair Use?

a_quietamerican writes: "According to Robin Good at the MasterNewMedia blog, Richard Stallman is refusing to let him and others post videos of his speeches to YouTube or any other service that doesn't support Free Software. This raises some serious questions about Mr. Stallman's commitment to Fair Use according to the ACT Blog. According to ACT:

Intelligent people can disagree over the scope of Fair Use, but there is NOTHING more clearly covered than public speeches and is the basis by which journalists and bloggers do their jobs. Yet, Stallman is quite clearly arguing that Fair Use doesn't apply to his speeches and he has the power to dictate how you can watch/listen to them.

How come everyone's going so slow if it's called rush hour?
