Welcome to the website dedicated to the documentary “La bataille du libre“ !
La bataille du Libre is a documentary by Phillipe Borrel that deals with the issues related to free software; and is produced by temps noir.
Purpose of the site
The site aims to make the documentary known to as many people as possible in order to support and assist the film in its internationalization and ultimately the “liberation” of the rushs. Indeed, a crowdfunding accessible here is set up. This crowdfunding has several objectives, including the production of an international version of the documentary, financing English translation. The final objective of the crowdfunding would be to allow the production and editing of new rushs and their availability under free license.

Nowadays, IT is at the heart of almost all human activities. Has it helped to make us more autonomous citizens ? Or rather the passive consumers of a market that has become total ? Without our being aware of it, two logics are now confronting each other at the heart of technology, since the emancipatory principles of free software came to attack in the 1980s those exclusive and “private” of intellectual property law. Free software, free seeds, free medicines, free knowledge… By emphasizing freedom, cooperation and sharing, they also restore autonomy and power to users. They can thus contribute to the emergence of a world free of patents for the benefit of the common good.
