Unfortunately, by the time people take to the streets and march, it is
often already too late to make a difference.

*That* is my biggest concern about the long-term viability of
organisations like the FSF and the EFF.  Even as they work as hard as
they can, we are getting more, not less, DMCA's and ridiculous patent
and trademark regimes.

I've generally found that the fastest way to get the right answer on the net
is to confidently assert the answer you believe to be right; those who know
will immediately correct you, while if you just ask, often no answers arrive.
All it requires is a willingness to look bad on occasion.
