As promised from last night,

Most of us probably don't know much about the US Free Trade Agreement's
Intellectual Property chapter.  Unfortunately, it contains much we
Free/Open Source people should fear, much along the lines of the recent
US experiences.

We have been far too quiet, and now we're paying.

Linux Australia have a "how to help" web page with links to all sorts of
relevant resources.


One simple and easy way to help is to sign the on-line petition:
