You ignored the important part of my message, because maybe I had a misunderstanding but do you agree that as long as the host of your meeting puts your speech up using only free software (torrents / http of OGV) that other people are free to use it as they like? You seem to like CC BY ND on your "opinion" works so I would assume that is an acceptable license for the video?

I promise that I /will/ be sharing the video however I feel like. If you guys want to be angry about it, I can care less -- I don't fight for you, my clients are not the Pirate Party, my clients are the people who are looking for knowledge and want to find it. I fight to make sure that everyone has access to everything in every format. If this was a movie, many of you wouldn't care -- but since this is super awesome RMS you want to make an exception. I don't play that game, knowledge is meant to be free.

If I /didn't/ upload it to YouTube, someone else would.. that's the nature of the Internet. That is most certainly the nature of pirates. Share share share, seed until you bleed. How dumb do you think RMS is? You think that he is going to pull out from doing a pirate event because he learned that an individual (not related to the group that he is working with) might share the work using methods that he doesn't approve of? He already knew that was going to happen when he made the agreement, he just doesn't want his hosts to be supporting it. (Richard, please chime in if this is wrong) 

Finally, I didn't book RMS. If I was hosting an event, I probably /wouldn't/ book RMS with the limitations that he requested. I am not a member of the group that did invite Mr.Stallman and I have no moral or social obligation to help them engage in an act that I feel stands against the ideals which I follow (which more align with Rick Falkvinge's wheel). They have no authority over my actions as an individual and I will not self-censor just to make them happy -- when I believe that my actions are morally just.
