I’ve taken Lessig Challenge and tried to support organizations, developers and others to support and protect online civil liberties. I try to use a Creative Commons license for my blog and work . Come out on Feb 2 and learn more about freedom and fair-use.
Dude, is that spyware in my new CD?
It’s timely that the night after the $250-a-plate fundraiser for Sarmite Bulte and the balanced meal counter-dinner hosted by Online Right Canada – and just days before a federal election that has brought Canadian copyright issues back into the media spotlight – Social Tech Brewing should have opportunity to bring you such an incredible line-up of voices for freedom and fair use.
These “copyfighters” are in the trenches working to help protect the rights of Canadians and to defend our public domain. As corporate lobbyists and big money recording interests scramble to get their buddies into power on Monday, Social Tech Brewing Co. brings you the vanguard of the grassroots copyright/copyleft activism movement in Canada! Sharing their stories, experiences, and ideas with us on Feburary 2nd will be:
- Ren Bucholz
- Online Rights Canada Web Organizer & Electronic Frontier Foundation Policy Coordinator, Americas
- Damien Fox
- CIPPIC / Canadian Software Innovation Alliance / WirelessNomad
- Neil Leyton
- Fading Ways’ Director & Founder Musician, producer, indie label entrepreneur, and copyleft activist
