From the Internet to the iPod, technologies are transforming our society and empowering us as speakers, citizens, creators, and consumers. When our freedoms in the networked world come under attack, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the first line of defense. EFF broke new ground when it was founded in 1990—well before the Internet was on most people’s radar—and continues to confront cutting-edge issues defending free speech, privacy, innovation, and consumer rights today. From the beginning, EFF has championed the public interest in every critical battle affecting digital rights.
My last post (21st Century I. P.) got two reblogs, one reply, and several comments. If you feel as strongly about this as I do, please visit their website by clicking on the EFF banner at the top of this post. If they make their case to you, please donate. In my last post I said that only the rich could afford the time and money to hire the lawyers to write and represent the laws. The EFF is everyman’s representative in the the new digital age.
