Anti Copy Protection Group Courts Bono

The Free Software Foundation is hoping it can convince Bono to take a public stance against copy protection technologies used in the music industry. According to Forbes, the organization has launched an online petition that asks Bono to join their fight to get recording labels and music distributors to remove digital rights management (DRM) technologies from their products.

The Free Software Foundation has been campaigning against music copy protection with its Defective By Design program. DRM, it feels, unfairly limits consumer's rights to use the music, videos, and other works of art they purchase.

Ultimately, the organization hopes that high visibility pressure from U2's Bono will act as a catalyst to push the recording industry into removing the use restrictions that are currently in place.

Other programs the Free Software Foundation is involved with include the General Public License (GPL) licensing used with many software packages including Linux distributions, and the GNU project.
