Well, the main reason I'm writing is that a good friend of mine is a

come around and wants to take some action, possibly in the form of a
bill this year... and he wants me to help him.
Well we've had some experience in that area and are continuing
the efforts (no links since they're usable with Russian/Ukrainian
language knowledge, but if you decide that automatic translation
is OK -- no problem).

It resulted in open software and standards (pay attention to
standards!) ley here in Ukraine.

BTW, if you've still not been to groklaw.net -- be sure to get a
look, there just may be a community that fits the job.

Thanks for the link to grocklaw.net I hadn't seen it before. I need to spend some time digging in there.

I'll have to give an update of my experiences when(if) any action actually comes about. Everything is still discussion and hypothetical right now.
