IPRED is not that well known, even among
the Net-savvy. And yet it's one of the most important EU directives

at the end of this week, on 30 March. Here's the background from EDRI:
I have been a technology journalist and consultant for 30 years, covering
the Internet since March 1994, and the free software world since 1995.
One early feature I wrote was for Wired in 1997:
The Greatest OS that (N)ever Was.
My most recent books are Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution, and Digital Code of Life: How Bioinformatics is Revolutionizing Science, Medicine and Business.
