    Declan -- of possible interest for Politech.  We're certainly looking 
    forward to your participation.
    The University of Ottawa is hosting a two-day conference on comparative 
    perspectives on intellectual property and Internet law. The conference 
    brings together 18 scholars from across Canada and the U.S. to compare how 
    Canada and the U.S. are dealing with issues such as copyright, privacy, and 
    e-commerce.  With schools such as Harvard, Berkeley, Stanford, and the 
    Wharton school all represented, it is one of the largest events of its kind 
    ever held in Canada.
    As part of the conference we are hosting a town hall style meeting with 
    senior Canadian government officials.  The plan is to have representatives 
    from Canadian Heritage and Industry Canada lay out their current plans on 
    copyright, patents, spam, and privacy and then engage in a serious 
    discussion with the audience and experts from across North America.  The 
    event will be moderated by noted technology journalist Declan McCullagh and 
    promises to provide a unique perspective on the current state of Canadian 
    technology policy.
    The event is planned for October 3rd and 4th, with the policy lunch slated 
    for Friday the 3rd.  Full details are at 
    For those that cannot attend in person, the symposium will be 
    webcast.  Links to the webcast will be available at the symposium url noted
