Liam Wyatt: Gratis & Libre

Abstract

"Gratis & Libre” discusses aspects of the idea of freedom in history by analysing the means by which it is curtailed. Specifically these are: the changing nature of copyright; attempts at censorship; knowledge destruction; the monetary cost of knowledge; and the politics of language. It seeks to show how Wikipedia walks a well-trodden path of anti-authority when it comes to the various means by which the ideal of freedom has been curtailed.
