LegacyOS 2000 launch plans?

In case you haven't heard, the official launch of Windows 2000 will be at
the Moscone Center on February 17th. Bill Gates will be there, will you?

Richard Couture has already agreed to make the CoffeeNet available that
day.

Are there any plans to hold some kind of rally?

Living, as I continue to, thanks to your foresight, right across the street
from there, I look forward to hearing about it.

Nope.  That's been moved to 4th Wednesdays at Tied House in Mountain
View.

MPAA protest

Andrew Bunner (of _DVD Copy Control Association v. Andrew McLaughlin,
Andrew Bunner, et al._ fame) is interested in protesting at a movie theater
in the Bay Area on Friday, as a part of _2600_'s actions against the
lawsuits.

I know that some of you are in New York.  Is anyone still around here and
interested?

[jya <at> pipeline.com: [DeCSS] Memorandum Opinion MPAA v. 3 New York]

Don Marti is mentioned in this ruling (though not by name).

----- Forwarded message from John Young <jya <at> pipeline.com> -----

Date: Thu, 03 Feb 2000 12:39:34 -0500
From: John Young <jya <at> pipeline.com>
Subject: [DeCSS] Memorandum Opinion MPAA v. 3 New York

Judge Kaplan has issued his Memorandum Opinion in 
the DeCSS MPAA v. 3 suit in New York:

   http://www.nysd.uscourts.gov/courtweb/pdf/00-01149.PDF

We offer an HTML version:

   http://cryptome.org/dvd-mpaa-3-mo.htm

Roman Kazan, you will be interested in Judge Kaplan's opinion 
of your complaint, as will all other ISPs.

The opinion is a powerful challenge to EFF and First
Amendment defenders. And should induce quite vigorous
combat now that Judge Kaplan has tipped the scales about
as far as they can go toward the side of MPAA and the copyright
industry.

[Further discussion of importance of this case snipped.]

Congress for sale^H^H^H^HSOLD

Attention Linux elitists:

If you're a US citizen seeking to use copyrighted works you
PAID FOR, the government wants to ignore YOU.

Send a list of ways in which the Digital Millennium Copyright
Act will fuck up YOUR life and work to /dev/null, I mean
follow the instructions for comments at:
http://www.loc.gov/copyright/1201/anticirc.html --  same thing.  

You don't have the money to BUY the government, so you just get 
the time-limited, advertising-loaded "Government Lite" sample 
version.  

That URL again:
http://www.loc.gov/copyright/1201/anticirc.html

Remember you don't have to believe that one person can make
a difference, you can get almost as much satisfaction from the
smug realization that you were there when It All Started and
your most sincere pleading to the already-purchased government  
didn't amount to a damn thing.  

I'll throw some kind of pathetic whimper about fair use and
libraries and commonly acceptable academic standards into the
pile.  At least they take email so I don't have to trash
trees as well as my carpal tunnels.
