Cory Doctorow in Antwerp

23 Jan 2006

Tomorrow I’ll go to a lecture by Cory Doctorow in Antwerp. Cory is a full-time blogger and is mostly known for his boingboing adventures, but he’s also the European representative of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an international organisation that stands up for the rights of the internauts, and he’s coming to tell us about how digital technology could limit the fragile rights of the viewer/consumer and about how the entertainment industry is trying to make its audience dependent of it (by means of something called ‘the broadcast flag’).

I hope I’ll be able to catch a moment to talk to mister Doctorow about some things, I’ll report about it tomorrow night when I get back home.

and you shouldn’t take it lying down!’
