  • Bring presentation print out
  • Print and bring photo album of our activity, especially from the last press conference
  • Explain a little background about the copyright law in Indonesia (available in the presentation above)
  • Explain why it's better for us to have a "local name" for CC in Indonesian, i.e. to make it easier for people to understand. But we do understand if it's a "trade mark" name that should not be translated.
  • Explain the plan to have national wide announcement on Aug 2009, during INAICTA 2009
