    car free propaganda!

    this is a calling for submissions of creative designs advocating bike use and calling for an end to the internal combustion madness of our current military industrial society.
    all designs will be distributed under copyleft licensing for use in advocacy campaigns promoting progressive bike culture.
    Designers will be entitled to a free sample of any item bearing their design (t-shirts, stickers, stencils, etc.)
    best voted design/designs will recieve a week's worth of meals at La Casa del Pan Restauraunt, in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.
    Reproductions may be retailed only by organizations demonstrating clear commitment to a car free future.
    More prizes may be offered at any time by any party.
    All wrongs reserved.

    Ummm, the only thing that I think may be unclear is the reference to "copyleft"
    That is a reference to the GPL license, i.e. that used for GNU/Linux. Google it.
    It may be better to use one of the forms of Creative Commons Licensing,
    GPL is not very well suited to Documents.

    Get in touch with these people. This conference has never been held in North America until this year.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    from Wikipedia:
    "Copyleft is a form of licensing and may be used to modify copyrights for works such as computer software, documents, music, and art. In general, copyright law allows an author to prohibit others from reproducing, adapting, or distributing copies of the author's work. In contrast, an author may, through a copyleft licensing scheme, give every person who receives a copy of a work permission to reproduce, adapt or distribute the work as long as any resulting copies or adaptations are also bound by the same copyleft licensing scheme."
    thanks for the carfreecities site, that is great! I will definetily contact them.

    Just speaking personally, a week of meals in Chiapas doesn't exactly inspire me. That would require me to buy tickets and hotel rooms in Chiapas. Include those and maybe you have an interesting contest.

    I think the original person questioning you wanted more details about the contest, such as a website, where to enter, how to enter.
