EFF co-founder faces copyright heavyweights at eG8

ndogg writes "EFF co-founder, and Grateful Dead lyricist, John Perry Barlow faced down copyright heavyweights the likes of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Jim Gianopulos of 20th Century Fox, and French Culture Minister Frédéric Mitterand. He was on a panel he described as "the Lions Den" discussing issues of intellectual property, and he was the lone dissenting voice on the panel. Mitterand had commented that copyright debates had grown so calm now that everyone agreed upon the ground rules. Barlow shook things up for once."
