MRD on the FTA

In the words of MRD:

“The US-Australia “Free” Trade Agreement (FTA): Linux Australia just released its
position paper on the FTA and the
negative effect it will have on Open-Source in Australia. This is a
very important issue, so if you are in Australia, consider writing a
letter to your local member of parliament, submitting something to
the senate committee considering this treaty, or raising awareness
of the issues in your local IT community. Our mailing list will soon
provide details on how you can get involved – but don’t wait – the
senate committee submission period closes soon.”

Rusty and our
independant legal advice think you should care about this issue too.
