#npbbxl 3.0 – Follow the beer approach

Copyright reform has started to become a hot topic with the Parliament’s first vote on the subject. Join us to find out what Parliamentarians might have meant with the “follow the money beer” approach – and who in the beer supply chain should be responsible for what (or not) – over drinks.

The next (30th!) net politics beer will take place on:

3 March
from 7pm onwards
Le Pantin (upstairs)
Chaussée d’Ixelles 355 [map]

If you’re not familiar with the concept yet: A ‘Net Politics Beer’ is an informal meetup of people involved or interested in the different fields of internet politics and activism (surveillance, copyright, privacy, open data, net neutrality…).
