Ditto. I finish work at 1730 (if I can get out bang on time!) so anything before 1800 is basically a no from me... even then, it would be a rush.
We do what we must because we can...
Everything I say is definitive. Reality is sometimes inaccurate.

more info on upcoming deappg event
Consumer Focus/deappg Event: The Government’s IPR Review and fair use rights. Rip, Mix, Burn - How can fair use rights make UK copyright fit for the digital age?

A panel event in the House of Commons, Committee Room 8, Tuesday 8th March 6.30-8.30

Consumer Focus: options for fair use rights in UK law

The economic impact of consumer copyright exceptions: A literature review

Time to change the tune – Consumer research briefing on copyright

In November last year our Prime Minster announced a review of the UK’s copyright framework to make it more innovation friendly, giving companies the breathing space to create new products and services. The Independent Review of IP and Growth, led by Prof Ian Hargreaves, set out to investigate what the benefits of ‘fair use’ exceptions to copyright may be.

What has been termed ‘fair use rights’ are essentially exceptions in copyright law which allow consumers and others to copy, adapt or distribute copyrighted works without the permission of the copyright owner. While the UK has a number of fair use rights, called fair dealing, for the benefit of research, news reporting and criticism, the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act only provides consumers with the fair use right to time-shift broadcast, ie record broadcasts to watch/listen at a later time, and the back-up of software in certain circumstances. Essentially the copying copyrighted content for personal use by consumers is largely illegal under UK law: the back-up of music, film and e-books is currently illegal and so is format-shifting, eg copying music into different formats to listen to on different devices.

Fair use of copyrighted content consumers have purchased is legal in most other countries through a general fair use or private use exception, and companies develop corresponding products and services. For example, format-shifting is legal in the US, and Apple has developed the iPod and iPlayer on the basis that consumers format-shift their CD collection into digital. This leads to the absurd situation whether UK consumers can purchase hardware and software that is designed specifically for something that is illegal in this country. And no UK consumer has ever been sued for the fair use of products they have purchased. So why has fair use not been legalised before? Is it time to update UK copyright law? What difference would it make to UK based technology companies? And how do artists feel about it?

I just realised:

"DEAPPG Event: The Digital Econoy, Consumer Trust and Privacy
Portcullis House, Thatcher Room Tues March 1st 6.30-8.30pm"

Is anyone going to this? Is it an open event, or do you need to be signed up?

Bit of a late answer ... protocol is often to let them know via 'further details contact' or 'RSVP' links on http://www.digecon.co.uk/events

Looks like the event on 7th IS only Lords and MPs.

But there are 2 events tomorrow:

The Stallman one looks interesting. but in the AM doesn't really work for me :/ It's like they expect us to be full-time politicians or something ;)

No idea how easy to get into. Last time we got into Portcullis house and we had <name escapes me> who works in Parliament with us and he pretty much told us what to do and led us by the nose. TBH nothing was all that complicated anyway.

I'd love to join you tonight, but after almost a week away skiing I should show my face around the house a bit (and also got a bunch of SE related emails I should be sending ... )
