the London Copyfighters' Drunken Brunch and Talking Shop before.
Their last event at the Stanhope Centre will still be hosted by Cory Doctorow, but then Suw Charman of the Open Rights Group will continue to host the brunches as picnics in Hyde Park starting in April, and will be looking for an indoor home for the events come the autumn.
In honour of this last Copyfighters' event at the Stanhope it will be open to the general public, so please feel free to spread the word to anyone you think might be interested (though unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to make it on this occasion, myself).
It will be co-sponsored by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Open Rights Group, the Foundation for Free Information Infrastructure and the Open Knowledge Forum Network.
Here are the details.
