The words were originally written by eweek. They were
quoted in the following programme quoted below.

I hope and think that the error has been fixed. The
email did not say that the program was by FSF-I,
another program organised by FSF-I talks only about
free software, and does not mention "open source".

--Quote from original mail sent to list follows--

Eben Moglen, Founding Director of the Software Freedom
Law Center, is ranked among the Top 100 Most
Influential People in IT, according to a study
recently conducted by eWeek. Ranked #92, Moglen is
cited as an "expert in open source law and one of the
guiding lights of GPL 3." In his talk Moglen will
touch up on
 Software patents, copyrights and free software
movement. Talk will be particularly for software
companies interested in Free and Open Source Software.

 Venue: Travencore Hall, Technopark
 Time : 3:00 pm
