Be aware of this though:
EFF Gets Meeting With Adobe, Protest Cancelled
[The Courts] Posted by Hemos on 12:41 PM July 20th, 2001
from the making-progress dept.
A number of people have sent in the e-mail that just crossed the
free-sklyarov mailing list, that essentially states that the EFF and Adobe
will have a meeting July 23rd. They are putting planned proest on hold.
Click below for more information.
The pressure we all have put on Adobe has resulted in an agreement to meet
with representatives from the Electronic Frontier Foundation on this
Monday morning, July 23.
For that reason, EFF has decided to:
PUT THE JULY 23 PROTEST ON HOLD
Please help us act in good faith and postpone the protest until we have a
chance to negotiate with Adobe.
Of course, we can always rekindle the protest if Adobe does not agree to
withdraw their complaint to the US Department of Justice regarding Dmitry
Sklyarov and to refuse to pursue further prosecutions under the DMCA for
cases that should be prevented under fair use provisions of US copyright
And also, if the US Attorney's office insists on prosecuting Dmitry
without a current complaint from Adobe, then we will continue protests
directed at them rather than at Adobe.
If you still feel that you have to protest on Monday, you are of course
free to do so. However, it may be a more effective use of our collective
energies to act in a coordinated way to get Dmitry out of jail.
I am writing a media release to this effect as soon as I sent this email
to you... wanted you all to know first.
