Symposium on copyright reform, Oct. 15

Bits of Freedom will be organising a symposium on copyright reform in the beautiful Berlage Exchange in Amsterdam on October 15, 2004. Entrance is free, but unfortunately there are no more seats left. Perhaps if I had known about it sooner I would have been able to go, but it seems BoF had their plans “on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of The Leopard’“.

Speakers, amongst others, are the copyright lawyers Christiaan Alberdink Thijm (he of Kazaa and Zoekmp3.nl fame, whose book on copyright for the digital age seems to be sold out), and Bernt Hugenholz, co-author of the Dutch Creative Commons licenses.

If all these Dutch copyfighters manage to buy books before I can get to them, and snatch tickets to copyright reform congresses away before me, how come I cannot find these people on the web?
