Also there should be someone at the courthouse who can help people find
precisely where they need to go, how to get the correct forms, etc, and
who can report back on issues, such as estimated waiting time, etc...

However, I don't think that justifies making a conscious decision to limit the scope of the effort. Therefore I suggest that we concentrate on maximizing our efforts during the timeframe of LinuxWorld and simply invite the rest of the world to join in.

I believe we'd get more "bang for our buck" by promoting from the NYLXS booth upuntil the day of the event. On the day of the 24th, I (along with anyone who cares to join) will leave LW and make my way to the Court House where I (as well as others I hope) will file suit. Hopefully time will permit a return to LW to possibly report back on the progress made.
> 2. Leading up to the 24th, an effort should be made to solicit contact information of those that support the cause. I think it's up to us to decide how granular we get with the type of information collected. I'm just tossing it out for thought now.
