hmm, just saw this on Slashdot:
"Why We Need Free Digital Hardware Designs"

Links to Wired:

It appears to me that Richard Stallman wrote this article.

Here is a quote:
"the concept we really need is that of a free hardware design. That’s
simple: it means a design that permits users to use the design (i.e.,
fabricate hardware from it) and to copy and redistribute it, with or
without changes. The design must provide the same four freedoms that
define free software."

I do like the philosophy behind it, but I am afraid the introduction
of the term "Free Hardware" will increase confusion about hardware
