On Saturday 20 September 2008, EFA Board Member Colin Jacobs and EFA Chair Dale Clapperton will speak at the Software Freedom Day event to be held in Melbourne, Australia. Starting at 11am, Colin will speak on the Rudd government's current 'clean feed' Internet censorship agenda, and present a comparative analysis of 'clean feed' against other Internet censorship regimes around the world.
Dale will discuss legal and policy issues of importance to open software and open software developers, including copyright, contract, and competition law, including recent cases in Australia and the United States of America, and the development of the secretive and worrying 'Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement' (ACTA).
Colin & Dale's presentations will be interactive and participatory, and time permitting, will be followed by a Q&A session. They look forward to the opportunity to meet EFA members and supporters at this significant event.
