(Please forward to campus mailing lists!)
They are forming Free Culture groups on campuses to explain copyright
law to fellow students. Stressing its importance for culture and
society, the group says copyright law is being abused. To illustrate
their point, the groups hold remixing contests, promote open-source
software and rally against legislation like the Induce Act, which
would hold technology companies liable for encouraging people to
an international student movement for free culture
This is exciting! If anyone wants support to form such a group at
OttawaU or Carleton, please let me know if there is any way I can help
(website hosting, speakers, whatever).
This reminds me of the excitement of the law students at OttawaU and
WindsorU creating http://www.canfli.org/

Code is Law: how software code regulates the activities of citizens,
and acts similar to law. How do we ensure transparency/accountability?
