More from Wikipedia:

Richard Matthew Stallman (/ˈstɔːlmən/; born March 16, 1953), also
known by his initials, rms, is an American free software movement
activist and programmer. He campaigns for software to be distributed
in such a manner, so that its users receive the freedoms to use,
study, distribute, and modify that software. Software that ensures
these freedoms is termed free software. Stallman launched the GNU
Project, founded the Free Software Foundation In October 1985,
developed the GNU Compiler Collection and GNU Emacs, and wrote the GNU
General Public License.

Stallman launched the GNU Project in September 1983 to write a
Unix-like computer operating system composed entirely of free
software. With this, he also launched the free software movement. He
has been the GNU project's lead architect and organizer, and developed
a number of pieces of widely used GNU software including, among
others, the GNU Compiler Collection, GNU Debugger, and GNU Emacs text

Stallman pioneered the concept of copyleft, which uses the principles
of copyright law to preserve the right to use, modify, and distribute
free software. He is the main author of free software licenses which
describe those terms, most notably the GNU General Public License
(GPL), the most widely used free software license.
