  Subject: April's CopyNight: Tuesday, April 26

  Last week, four content industry executives squared off against EFF's
  Fred von Lohmann and NYU's Siva Vaidhyanathan in a lively debate at
  Cornell University. Some copyfighters worried that four against two
  would be unbalanced, but it was the content execs who were outmatched
  by Fred's and Siva's expert debating. Plus, the Cornell students were
  almost unanimously skeptical of the content industry's claims - a very
  auspicious sign for the future of our movement.

  Watch the three hour video and hear some great arguments on both sides

  Meanwhile, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has
  been pushing stronger IP for decades, and it has announced that
  Tuesday, April 26 is "World Intellectual Property Day 2005." Their
  goal is to celebrate information-as-property, but we've got a better
  idea: meet people in your area who care about balanced intellectual
  property, not just more of it.

  Gathering for conversation over drinks or dinner is a great way to
  start turning those feelings into action. And one week from Tuesday,
  join us for gatherings in one of these cities:
