The whole point of the recent Web site "blackout" was to reach people whose browsing habits usually only involve surfing on in and downloading the latest "free stuff". Whilst Drobe might not be the chosen recreational launchpad for many top software industry professionals, it is important to get the message out to those entering the profession (note the reasonably high number of students in the RISC OS scene) and those affected by it, especially if the software ported to RISC OS starts to dry up because some idiot-company decides to sue the pants off various open source projects.

The sad thing is that many people will just assume that other people are making the case on their behalf. Right until various vested interests get dubious EU legislation passed to suit their arguably unfair business practices...
