I know this is short notice — the talk is on MONDAY 29-May-2006 — but
this is _also_ something many (presumably) people on this e-list are
very interested in .... Please note that it is Free (as in Beer).

List-Id: "Announcements from the UKUUG. No membership needed" <announce.lists.ukuug.org>
UKUUG is pleased to announce a free evening talk, "Update of the
constitution: introduction to GPLv3," presented by Georg Greve, founder
and President of FSF Europe.
When: Monday 29th May 2006, 18:30 for a 19:00 start
Where: Cockcroft Theatre

Please feel free to extend this invitation to any colleagues or friends

The GNU General Public License (GPL) invented the concept of Copyleft
and is the most popular Free Software license today. After many highly
successful years for version 2, the GPL is currently being overhauled to
meet the needs of the next decade.
The presentation will give an introduction to version 3, the changes
made, their reasoning and how to participate in the process to make sure
GPLv3 will be the best GPL we can collectively create.
About the speaker:
In early 2001 Georg Greve initiated the founding of the Free Software
Foundation Europe (FSFE, FSF Europe), the construction and coordination
of which has kept him busy on European and global level in past years.
Within these activities between technology, politics, society, and
economy, Georg Greve was for instance invited as an expert to the
"Commission on Intellectual Property Rights" of the UK government and
participated in the first phase of the United Nations (UN) World Summit
on the Information Society (WSIS) on behalf of the German coordination
circle of Civil Society within the German governmental delegation.
