                   Internet Rights 
        Updating society for the Information Age

                     Paul Mobbs

              Sunday 4th August, 2002

		   6.30pm, Comlab

Paul Mobbs will talk through the issues surrounding our rights
- or rather the lack of any rights - to access and use networks for 
communications and organising socially.  

He'll provide an update on current legislative changes and the
possibilities of people getting involved to lobby for digital
rights - e.g. the new Communications Bill.

Finally he'll also talk about the role of free software in
Internet rights and mention some specific community initiatives 
such as the 'Community-Linux Training Centre'

                   ----------------

The meeting will (as always), be followed by drinks at the Lamb
and Flag.  The Comlab entrance is from Parks Road and 
there are maps at http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/archive/ox/maps.html
