I know a lot of you are getting sick of hearing about the DMCA and
SSSCA, but they mysteriously fail to go away even when people get
bored of them.

This meeting involves every single EFF attorney.

?Will Free Expression Survive the Digital Media Revolution??

 Movies. Music. Books. You buy it; you own it. That?s how it used to be. 
Now the DMCA
and expanded copyright laws are helping Hollywood change all that. Come and 
hear the EFF
attorneys talk about the state of the battlegrounds that affect your rights.

EFF attorneys will tackle thorny issues during this interactive discussion, 
such as the impact on
science and research from the DMCA?s broad ban on technical information, 
its effect on encryption
and computer security, Constitutional challenges in court and possible 
legislative actions,
international concerns, and the role of fair use in the digital age.
