Great. How about we make it an open letter to Mary Harney, publish on website and distribute widely. I've been contacted by a journalist, would be handy for this. It should go the members of the competetiveness council, COREPER IP working group, Parliament, ENTEMP, etc. If anyone has up-to-date lists, please let me know. COREPER are discussing latest Council draft on Tues. It is bad: scope has been widened, patents are back in and criminal sanctions remain. The worst of all worlds. If anyone would like a copy, let me know.
According to the Irish presidency programme, there's a tbc conference on copyright in 21/22 June in Dublin organised by ENTEMP. Usually, the Commission organise a big copyright conference every two years in the presidency country,  but I heard they weren't doing it anymore because it cost too much. High level, invite only, rightholder dominated. Last one was in Spain http://europa.eu.int/comm/internal_market/en/intprop/news/index.htm. I'll try to find out more.
