I would say: only accept it if you feel you'll have enough time and
ability to make a good case for software freedom.  If you don't think
you'll be able to do that, it may be better to instead not be on the panel
but find another way to get our message across.

I should not that either way, it would be a very good idea to "stack" the
audience with people who support software freedom, and have them ask
leading questions in our favor.

discuss it---at least to know where you stand with him/her.
