Boucher in the Bay Area

Congressman Rick Boucher (D-VA) continues to be one of the smartest voices
on technology policy in Washington, and a strong advocates on the Hill for fair use and
reform of the DMCA. He's been involved in Net issues for over a decade (his first Internet legislation helped open the Internet up for public use in 1992), and has worked hard to reconcile all sides in the copyfight.

This Monday lunchtime, he'll be talking at Stanford Law School on DC's
reaction to MGM v. Grokster, and possible options for legal online music

If you're local to the Bay Area, this will be a rare chance to gain insight into current Washington thinking, as well as potential future twists and turns in the battle for sensible copyright policy.
