Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 (X11/20090817)
I've just found out that Andrew Robinson, leader of the UK Pirate
Party will be speaking in Manchester on Thursday evening.
A graphic designer by trade and a musician in his spare time, Andrew
heads up the UK Pirate party - a political party - registered with the
electoral register with "Reform copyright and patent law" as one of it's
He is going to be speaking at the launch event of Manchester Free
Culture Society, a newly formed group to encourage discussion and
debate about free culture and copyright with relation to creative works.
I'm told that the launch night will also feature:
John Harris, Director of the ISEI (Institute for Science, Ethics and
Creative Commons licenced band: I am Ten Ninja
A short film by Lawrence Lessig
Plus art, music, literature and software etc.
As I mentioned, the event is this Thursday evening, in the council
chambers at at Manchester University Student Union.
The event is due to start at 6.30pm and go on until about 8pm.
How to Get to the SU (Manchester Academy!):
On a personal note, I'm not totally convinced that Mr Robinson has got
it right, however I think that discussion and public debate about these
issues is the only way of coming to a general consensus.
