   Great start.

   One of the things we are working against is the tunnel-vision behind 
the concept of "intellectual property".

A Godwin's law for copyright discussions?

real property and "intellectual property")


   There is a lot of discussion of alternate words, but not sure if this 
concept is the best focus on in any case.

Maybe:

"Do you want to control your computer, or do you want your software 
vendor to take that control away?"

Or maybe just focus on the new vision/etc:

"Meet the new CLUE: now more than Linux and User groups.

The Vision of CLUE is to nurture a Canadian Information Technology 
environment which promotes collaborative innovation as well as open 
standards and the rights of consumer.

Join with other people who have a CLUE."
