Today the Free Software Foundation is having a community planning day today for the upcoming International Day Against DRM 2021 event, and the public is invited to attend.

The annual event, started in 2006 by FSF’s anti-DRM initiative Defective by Design, seeks to be “a counterpoint to the pro-DRM message broadcast by powerful media and software companies,” as well as to draw attention to the anti-consumer aspects of DRM. This year, the worldwide event is scheduled to take place on December 10, 2021.

Today’s online Community Planning Day for the event will take place between 2 pm-4 EST pm (11 am-1 pm PST) using the #dbd channel on the Libera.Chat IRC network.

“This year, we want to work with the community more closely than ever before and bridge the gap between anti-DRM activists, those involved with the software freedom movement, and everyday individuals,” Greg Farough, campaigns manager of the FSF said in a statement. “Together, we’ll stand up against DRM on December 10th.”

“As one of the most memorable parts of last year’s Day Against DRM was our informal advocacy strategy session held over BigBlueButton,” he added. “We want to begin our public planning of the event with a similar meeting. We’re inviting you to collaborate with us in the preparation for this year’s IDAD, sharing suggestions and anti-DRM activism methods, as well as organizing online satellite events.”

The FSF said that those who can’t attend today’s session due to scheduling conflicts can share share their thoughts via email at campaigns@fsf.org.
