Patent reform panel visits Hamilton Linux Users Group (HLUG)

A Newsforge article by Crystle Numan discusses the panel in Hamilton on February 1.

The evening ended with a call to everyone who cares about free and open source software to speak to their local politicians and share their views on patents and copyrights. By sharing the practical reasons to support patent and software reform, friends also could be convinced to talk with their politicians. As Young said more than once during the evening, "Votes trump money."
