To be honest, I am not convinced, that 2000 members of DANTE e.V. (or at
least a significant part) will return their USB flash drives. Secondly,
I don't want our secretary or anybody else to copy the data to 2000 USB
flash drives.

And again, we are talking about prices less than 0,50 EUR per DVD and
year for producing and shipping. Just shipping the USB flash drive back
to our members would be more expansive.
