This talk is titled "Why our economy fails public goods like free software," and was presented at LibrePlanet 2022 by Aaron Wolf.
Aaron is co-founder of Snowdrift.coop and a long-time free software and free culture activist. In his day job as an independent music teacher, he pushes his students to use free/libre tools and release their music under free licenses.
This talk is a discussion of the economic distinctions between private goods, club goods, commons, and public goods; and why software freedom struggles to get economically supported.
