Digital Economy Bill Unconference and Workshops

I’m excited to announce that the Open Rights Group, in association with the GIST foundation, is hosting a free unconference and workshop on the Digital Economy Bill in Sheffield this month:

Date: Wednesday, January 27, 2010
Time: 13:30 – 21:00
Location: The Showroom Café Bar, Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX

The Digital Economy Bill will affect you:

  • If your home Internet-connection contract is in your name.
  • If your business offers Internet access to the public (wifi hotspots or terminals.)
  • If you depend on copyright for your income (software writers, publishers, authors, bloggers, photographers, musicians, film-makers, artists, DJs, newspapers, radio stations etc.)
  • Come to the unconference and find out more about the legislation and how it will impact your home life, your business and your community. Stick around for the workshops and learn how you can make sure your opinions on these issues heard in Westminster.

    Tickets are available separately for any of the following parts of the event. You can come to one of the workshops even if you can’t make it to the unconference.

    13:30 – 17:30: Digital Economy Bill Unconference
    17:30 – 19:00: Talk to your MP: Workshop 1 *
    19:00 – 20:30: Talk to your MP: Workshop 2 *

    * Workshop places are limited, so booking is essential.

    There will be breaks between sessions and time to socialise before, during and after the event.

    Reserve your free tickets now. See you there!

    For those who can’t get to Sheffield, workshops are also taking place in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, though these events will not be preceded by unconferences.
