Don Marti, Editor in Chief, Linux Journal magazine
will be speaking at the Linux Users' Group of Davis
on Tuesday, February 4, 2003 at 6:30pm.

Davis Library
315 East 14th Street
Davis, CA 95616

Topic: Anticircumvention Provisions of the DMCA

  "The verdict in the Elcomsoft DMCA case clearly represents a giant, glowing
  neon 'Jury Nullifcation' of the anticircumvention provisions of the
  Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA).  A blanket anticircumvention law,
  now matter how logical it may seem to some, is simply so unjust that if
  you pick 12 random citizens and present it to them, they'll reject it.
  People are saying 'we don't think laws against circumvention should apply
  to non-infringers. Please reform the DMCA to reflect this.'"

Don Marti is Editor in Chief of Linux Journal magazine, and Vice President of
the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group (SVLUG). He served as Technical Editor of
Linux Journal for over two years, and was Editor in Chief of
Embedded Linux Journal.  Marti is best known for his community activism,
including helping organize well-known events such as Windows Refund Day and
a Free Dmitry rally.

The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)7 non-profit computer club that
meets twice a month in Davis, California.  This event is free, and open to
