Freedom of Network services  ( including AGPLv3, works of groups like
autonomo.us etc ) seems to be a very good topic.. I hope RMS will cover
Patent issues in other talks also. (he used to address contemporary
issues in most of his talks).  Are they (IISc)planning to include this
as a part of ongoing centenary celebrations or as a separate event? .  I
think centenary celebrations is happening on same dates. Dont forget to
communicate FSUG-Bangalore as a partner for this event. It will be good
if IISc can provide accommodation for RMS in Bangalore, because it is
centrally located

please ask the free software supporters you know from IISc to join in
this list

should also gather all other supporters in iisc..

can get in touch with folks we don't know

BMSLUG is completely a student driven initiative (Unlike other campuses
in Bangalore) and very committed towards the cause of freedom.
Accepting their request is just a way to recognize it.
Anyway they couldn't make it this time.
