Wednesday 22 May 2002, in the offices of the law firm of Weil Gotshal &
Manges, at 767 Fifth Avenue, near 58th Street, on the Island of the
Manahattoes, there will be a panel of lawyers who will talk about several
recent assaults by the Englobulators against our ancient liberties,
specifically our right to own a printing press^W^Wcomputer connected to the
net, and our right to riff at home, in perfect freedom, upon such lines of
beat and yowl and rhyme and paint and clay and wood and marble and light
and sky and water as we feel and choose.


On this panel there will be at least one paid agent of the Englobulators.

The Englobulators will not have it all their way: Wendy Seltzer, of the
Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School, will be on the
panel.
