  what="official New Yorkers for Fair Use announcement">

    New Yorkers for Fair Use will meet at 6:30 pm Saturday 11
December 2004.

    NYFU and many organizations, tribes, and free lances will
    attend the FTC P2P Workshop on 15 and 16 December 2004:


    At this NYFU meeting we will make arrangements to get down
    to the FTC P2P Workshop and present our case.

 We will meet at the the Gyro Pizza and Bagel Place on the
 corner of Third Avenue and Eighth Street on the Island of the
 Manahattoes, likely in the back.  The Gyro Place has several
 names.  The location is also called Astor Place and also St.
 Marks and Third Avenue.  There are two subway stops nearby:
 Eighth Street NRW, Astor Place Lexington Avenue Line.

 NYFU will be in Washington on 15 December 2004 to present to the 
 FTC facts and principles not yet well understood among 
 legislators, judges, and regulators.  One of the things NYFU
 will argue for is that there are two distinct usages of the
 phrase "peer to peer", and that it is dangerous to conflate the
 two. We need your help to convey this, and more, to the FTC. If
 you believe you have the right to own a computer and use your 
 computer as you wish in the privacy of your house, and you are 
 willing to work in defense of this right, come to this meeting. 
 If you believe that the First Amendment to the Constitution of 
 the United States, and the Fourth too, apply to our use of our 
 Net, and you are willing to work in the common defense of our 
 Great Commons, come to this meeting.

 In particular, at this meeting we will make arrangements to get 
 folk down to Washington DC in good time for the FTC Workshop,
 and we will get housing for those who stay overnight.  So if
 you want to come down to Washington DC with New Yorkers for
 Fair Use, and speak before the FTC for Freedom of the Net, come
 to this meeting.

 New Yorkers for Fair Use
 DRM is Theft!  We are the Stakeholders!
