*IPR+patents (PPI) (seminar)
*Cyberdemocracy (HSF) (??)

lot of text, or even that in-depth (althogh if it is, that's also

Both PPSE and Ung Pirat have put aside money for printed material. Ung
Pirat in particular has a special budget post for ESF prints.
Therefore it is entirely likely that we will be able to share printing
costs provided they're not too fancy (budget exists but is still

If there are any questions, don't hesitate to ask,
