The New York Linux Users Group gathered about nine pages of signatures for
the DVD Open Letter to Congress from the LinuxWorld Expo last week. We are
ready to get serious about this issue.

Chris DiBona had the idea that if/when there is another trial out here, we
could picket it and potentially influence a judgement. I'd like to bring
NYLUG to bear on the MPAA so they don't think they can claim NYC as easy-
prey jurisdiction.
