Archive talk:Becoming an official chapter

I oppose calling local groups "chapters." I wrote a longer reason for this before -- basically, I think it makes more sense to say that represents the Free Culture groups at a (inter)national level, than to say that Free Culture groups are mini-FreeCulture.orgs. This emphasizes the autonomy of local groups, and the grassroots / participatory nature of the movement. You don't need our permission to call yourself "Free Culture," but we only represent the people we work with. -- Gavin 22:34, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)
