As an avid listener to radio, I've heard the anti-piracy message so many
times that it has started to get really really irritating.

Well, I suppose some can argue that it is a public interest community
service (reduction of piracy levels in developing countries allegedly
encourage entrepreneurs to build/sell their wares - real world stats
speak a different story, but that's another blog/mail post :-) ).

Sounds good. If the initial legwork can be done (feasibility as well
what's required to be submitted to them), we can definitely pursue this
under the umbrella of OSSIG and/or ODFSIG.

However, somebody will need to step up and volunteer to do the initial
legwork (I will, unfortunately, be too busy in the next two months
getting other foss stuff up and running).
