The entertainment industry vs. everyone

Speaking of the EFF:

Inventive Gizmos – A Celebration of Innovation

Tuesday, 22 February 2005
7:00pm – 9:30pm

111 Minna Gallery
111 Minna St.

This event is part of the EFF’s Endangered Gizmos campaign, which is meant to educate people about the way the entertainment industry is attempting to buy legislation that will restrict the rights of individuals with regard to music, movies, TV, etc. They’ve got some interesting information on their site, and it should be a real eye-opener for anyone who’s not familiar with what’s going on in the area of copyright and fair use.

Conveniently, 111 Minna is about half a block from work, so I’ll probably be there early.

I renewed my EFF membership this morning.
