ORG invited to give oral evidence to APIG DRM public inquiry

The Open Rights Group has been asked by the All Party Parliamentary Internet Group to attend its oral evidence gathering session on 2 February. ORG will send three representatives - the maximum allowed - who will be questioned by MPs. Other groups that have been invited include:

  • Society for Computers and Law
  • British Library
  • Libraries Archives Copyright Alliance (LACA)
  • Share The Vision
  • British Music Rights
  • EMI
  • AIM
  • EMusic.com
  • AOL
  • BBC
  • PACT
  • The Publishers Association
  • The Film Council
  • NCC
  • FIPR
It's notable that there don't seem to be any consumer electronics companies present. If you want to see our written presentation, along with others from Kevin Marks, the UK Unix User's Group, David Weinberger, the FFII and the National Consumer Council, it's all on the wiki.
