Is your congressional rep part of the new Fourth Amendment Caucus? If not, ask them to join. A group of (even just 10-12) constituents can easily shift a politician on the fence.
 
25 Members of Congress have launched a new bipartisan caucus to defend Fourth Amendment rights.
On matters implicating privacy, such as mass surveillance or the powers of investigatory agencies, Congress has too often failed to fulfill its responsibilities.

Success! Thousands of Americans convince Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to stand up against the TPP. 
Today, EFF joined a broad coalition of other public interest groups at Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's office in San Francisco, to present her with a petition carrying an incredible 209,419 signatures with a request to oppose the introduction of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) during the post-election "lame duck" session of Congress. And with your help, we succeeded!

Online copyright infringement is on a steady decline, but Hollywood acts like it's an epidemic.
If you only listened to entertainment industry lobbyists, you’d think that music and film studios are fighting a losing battle against copyright infringement over the Internet. Hollywood representatives routinely tell policymakers that the only response to the barrage of online infringement is to expand copyright or even create new copyright-adjacent rights.

Ironically, the ringleader of Kickass Torrents got arrested because he made a legitimate itunes purchase. Apparently the IP he used connected his real identity to the indentity behind KAT.

Section 1201 doesn't just need to be repealed, it needs to be sent in exile to Mars...

...along with all the bought-and-paid-for politicians who foisted it on us.

It's not just unconstitutional, it's anti-constitutional, anti-freedom, and anti-American.

It's the last day to join EFF for as little as $20 and reserve a set of dice for passphrase generation. Or Yahtzee.

Bitcoin company Blockstream commits to avoid patent trolling—we hope to see other developers follow its lead.
We’ve written many times about the need for comprehensive patent reform to stop innovation-killing trolls. While we continue to push for reform in Congress, there are a number of steps that companies and inventors can take to keep from contributing to the patent troll problem.

Section 1201 of the DMCA cannot pass constitutional scrutiny. Today, we've filed a lawsuit to challenge that law.
Section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act forbids a wide range of speech, from remix videos that rely upon circumvention, to academic security research, to publication of software that can help repair your car or back up your favorite show. It potentially implicates the entire range of speech that relies on access to copyrighted works or describes flaws in access controls—even where that speech is clearly noninfringing.

Defending your civil liberties in the digital world.
Introduction

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world. Founded in 1990, EFF champions user privacy, free expression, and innovation through impact litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism, and technology development. We work to ensure that rights and freedoms are enhanced and protected as our use of technology grows.

Even in the fledgling days of the Internet, EFF understood that protecting access to developing technology was central to advancing freedom for all. In the years that followed, EFF used our fiercely independent voice to clear the way for open source software, encryption, security research, file sharing tools, and a world of emerging technologies.

Today, EFF uses the unique expertise of leading technologists, activists, and attorneys in our efforts to defend free speech online, fight illegal surveillance, advocate for users and innovators, and support freedom-enhancing technologies.

Together, we forged a vast network of concerned members and partner organizations spanning the globe. EFF advises policymakers and educates the press and the public through comprehensive analysis, educational guides, activist workshops, and more. EFF empowers hundreds of thousands of individuals through our Action Center and has become a leading voice in online rights debates.

EFF is a donor-funded US 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that depends on your support to continue fighting for users.
