    There is a whole bunch of pirates (here in Greece, and I bet all around)
    who want to see/listen to your speech in Paris.

Once they have a video ready, in Ogg Theora or Webm, the organizers
can distribute it from their own site, perhaps using a torrent if
the traffic warrants that.  It is not difficult to do, and it supports
several important principles:

* the end-to-end Internet
* not depending unnecessarily on large corporations
* torrents have lawful uses
* not encouraging use of nonfree software
