FISL15 debates the Free Software Movement as a tech, philosophic, political and social question.

In a post in his blog, in February, 2014, Anahuac de Paula Gil decreed the "death of the Brazilian Free Software Movement". With this idea in mind, Alexandre Oliva, Free Software Evangelist, had the idea of bringing to the Forum a debate about the subject.

The table was composed by Anahuac de Paula Gil himself, and by activists Frederico Gonçalves Guimarães, Ricardo Panaggio and Sérgio Durigan Junior, mediated by Alexandre Oliva. The main idea was making popular the notion that there is an alternative way to the proprietary softwares, with the four freedoms defined by Richard Stallman in 1983, when he created Free Software - freedom to run the program, for any purpose, freedom to study the program, freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbour, freedom to modify the program and redistribute the modified version, so all community can benefit.

- FISL is an important event to carry the Free Software message. The debate is important to reassure these liberties and show people this is still alive in the Movement, says Durigan Junior.

According to Anahuac, the proprietary tools are beautiful golden cages, but still cages.

What happens is a scenario where intolerance with proprietary software and domination movements they bring are being diluted and the intolerance is towards those who point out this incoherence. People inside the Movement can only show the right way if they are in the right way. If we have intersection points in a private net, or a disclosure point, that makes sense, but the convergence point has to be outside these nets, he said.
