In Washington DC on Tuesday 5 June 2012 at 1:30 pm in the
Jefferson Building, there will be a discussion of Proposed
Exemption 4 to the "Prohibition on Circumvention of Copyright
Protection Systems for Access Control Technologies" which
prohibition is a part of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
On the panel, our side is strong. In addition to Brett Wynkoop
and Jay Sulzberger of New Yorkers for Fair Use, we've got
Aaron Williamson, of the Software Freedom Law Center, and
Marcia Hoffman, of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
My advice to the unwashed Linux minions is to stay home.
Seeing you "neck bearded" freetards in person will be too much of a
shock for congress and it certainly will not help your cause any.
Hehehe ... fair use? What about the consumers? Or the developers for
that matter? All the developers I've seen always want some kind of
remuneration, unless all the new beginning developers wants is recognition.
