Australia is required to enact harsh new “anti-circumvention” laws under the Australia-US Free Trade Agreement

Paul “Rusty” Russell, Australian Linux kernel hacker, visited Humbug on Saturday, gave a talk on the possible consequences of Australia’s obligations under the FTA. You can read the information, listen to his audio and view the slides.

On Klepas.org there’s an article What rights do I actually still have…? 🙁 explaining things in a way that may help the average person understand how this issue affects us.

Please sign the petition at http://linux.org.au/law and talk about these issues with friends family and business partners. Make your digital rights an issue for yourself and your government representative.
