John Goerzen, our former leader, is back in town and has volunteered to do the
following presentation for our November meeting:
Big Brother Wants Your Movies
* Discussion of current events surrounding the loss of rights, both
related to new digital media and to conventional media. I'll give
a background on copyright, trademark, and patent law; a background
of the developments in the last 20 years that have a significant
impact on what's happening now; and ongoing court battles and
controversies surrounding content-management systems (CMS),
piracy, espionage, and more.
* Coverage of current attacks on Free Software -- proprietary
code in the Linux kernel, the bitkeeper issue, .NET, software
patents and the IETF, and more.
* If there is time after the presentation, I would be willing to debate
anyone that has a differing viewpoint. Failing that, Q&A time.
This meeting will be held in Rm 247 in Jabara Hall on the WSU campus. The door
will be open at 7:00pm, announcements will be begin at 7:30pm with the
presentation following immediately afterwards and lasting until approximately
We hope to see you there!
