Tell the FBI not to sidestep privacy and transparency with its massive biometric database.
The FBI has been amassing a vast database of biometric data—faces, fingerprints, iris scans, tattoos, and more—from millions of people. Not only has the FBI failed to tell the public the full story of this Next Generation Identification (NGI) system, now it wants to sidestep crucial privacy protections. Tell the FBI we won’t give an inch when it comes to our rights.

Not enough. The frauds who claimed copyright should get harsher punishment.

Like being stripped of ALL their copyrights.

Nine years ago, Apple released the first iPhone. Here's how to protect the version in your pocket today.
If you have an iPhone 3GS or later, an iPod touch 3rd generation or later, or any iPad, you can protect the contents of your device using encryption. That means that if someone gets physical access to your device, they will also need your passcode to decrypt what's stored on it, including contacts, instant messages or texts, call logs and email.

I know the focus is on iPhones, but many people are unaware that Android phones have these same (and arguably better) features.

Three recent Supreme Court decisions on IP give more leeway to lower courts. That could be good or bad news.
The Supreme Court decided two patent cases and one copyright case this month. If the three cases have a unifying theme, it is that the Supreme Court gave more deference to fact-finding tribunals, whether that is the Patent Office or district courts. We discuss each of the three rulings below. Halo Electronics v. Pulse Electronics TL;DR: The Supreme Court gives district courts more discretion to impose enhanced damages in patent cases.

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.
