Next ORG event: Copyfighters' Drunken Brunch and Talking Shop, Sunday 19 March

For most of the last year, I've been going to Cory Doctorow's Copyfighters' Drunken Brunch and Talking Shop, a monthly (ish) gathering of copyright activists where we sit about and eat brunch, talk about copyright, and drink Mimosa (that's 'Buck's Fizz' if you're a Brit) before going over to Speaker's Corner to harangue the crowd.

Because of budgetary restrictions, it's been a quiet little affair, but that's all set to change this Sunday 19 March when Copyfighters' will open its doors to all. Cory has secured co-sponsorship from Electronic Frontier Foundation, ORG, the Foundation for Free Information Infrastructure and the Open Knowledge Forum Network, meaning that we can now supply as much Mimosa as required. (And trust me, Mimosa is required prior to any appearance at Speakers Corner.)

So, come along to the Copyfighters' Brunch on Sunday, March 19th, starting at 11am at Stanhope Centre (see below). This will be the last event at Stanhope, whose lease expires shortly thereafter.

However, Copyfighters' will go on! We at the Open Rights Group are going to continue to host the Copyfighters' brunches as picnics in Hyde Park starting in April, and are at this very moment looking for an indoor home for the events come the autumn.

See you there!
