Michael Geist to Keynote NZ Public Summit on ACTA

I wrote before about PublicACTA, a summit being convened by public interest group InterneNZ two days before the final round of negotiations on ACTA. Not surprisingly, InternetNZ just announced that Professor Michael Geist will be giving the keynote at the summit. Geist has been a staunch defender of maintaining appropriate limits in the face of impending new intellectual monopoly rights. He has also been a phenomenal resource for details, leaks and analysis as the ACTA negotiations have unfolded.

This is going to set an amazing tone for the summit. Times like these, I wish I had an unlimited budget so I could plan to be there. I hope the keynote is either streamed live or recorded and made available afterwards.
