GNU guru Stallman accosted by pro-DRM ninjas

Filed under:

At the end of a debate by the Yale Political Union on the topic of DRM — the verdict? It should be banned — well known free software advocate Richard Stallman was confronted by a collective group of ninjas, obviously hired by Microsoft in response to one Chinese student’s interruption of Bill Gates’ speech in China. Turns out the ninjas were just reenacting a comic from XKCD, which depicts “rms,” as he is affectionately known, whipping out a sword to defend himself from anti-GPL pranksters. No sword was thrusted in this example: instead, only a hearty chuckle was heard emanating from the bearded and shoeless father of the free software movement.
