Excuse me to ask this two lists again to support us to fight against Software 
Patents. Tomorrow 23.09.2003 will be a discussion inside the European 
Parlament about this dangerous patents, the voting will be on Wednesday.

Nico from mplayer-users was so kind to record the press confrence about 
Software Patens yesterday - he was sucsessfull, someone with a standalone 
receiver not - and we have no this DVB-S dump on the server of ael.be:

EBS.ts                  22-Sep-2003 07:48  1.6G

When sombody knows how to make 4 languages versions from it and to convert it 
into a smaler (but leagal) format, you are wellcome to download it, convert 
it and upload it a gain. Also mirroring this directory is welcome.

About tomorrow, it`s a pitty that I still have only a DVB-S reciever but no 
DVB-S card. So when you have a DVB-S card and you could receive Eutelsat, 
please help us to document the discussion inside the European Parlament:

here is "something" live tomorrow on EbS:

23.09.2003 between 9:00-11:30h:
Patentability of computer-implemented inventions : Report McCARTHY - 
Information Society (European Parliament ) (EPRef-31105)  
This will be in the languages:

So we have to find again DVB-S user to recod this ;)

And between 11:30-12:00h there will be "News EbS 1" with
Patentability of computer-implemented inventions : Report McCARTHY -
Information Society (European Parliament, Strasbourg) (EPRef31107)  
This will be 2-3 minutes shots for European TV stations to creat an 
TV-actikel/spot. When people in Strassbourg organize something creative,
they should take care that an camera-man of EbS will record this and use it 
for this for "News EbS 1"

So because of DBV-S software could only record 8 langugares at once, I would 
propose to record
At least 2 persons should help, or better for redudance 4 ore more.
Especialy when you have a quite fast upload-connection your help is needed.
(People with slower connections could care for redudance or/and burn it and go 
to an conection (university, company) and ask for uploading it))

There was also in interesting Broadcast of the European Parlament Parlamento,
I tried the Greens to request an rebroadcast of this via EbS. So please check 
out the shedual of EbS from time to time to see if "Parlamento" will be 
rebroadcast. The Shedule of EbS:

Receiving informations:

The good think is, that the EbS broadcasts are free, when it was not markt on 
the sheduale, that they are not:
 Services are free of charge and free of rights for non-commercial purposes, 
ie services should be used for an informative reason, except when 
specifically mentioned. Where possible, we ask you to credit the 'European
