Each year on April 15th, Americans pay taxes that keep the government running. It’s a time for reflecting upon whether that money is funding a government for the people, or a government that is undermining the people, supposedly for their own good. After a watershed year of newly disclosed information about the National Security Agency, activists in the Tea Party are fighting harder than ever for Constitutional rights, including the Fourth Amendment right to privacy.

+Alex Schleber Funny, I don't feel represented.

The TEA Party was founded by break away activists tired of being kept in the closet by the GoP. When they gained numbers, the GoP sent in operatives and turned into an immigrant hate group. Now they run around repeating Dixiecrat style progressive dogma and don't seem at all concerned about being "Taxed Enough Already".

EFF went toe-to-toe with notorious copyright troll Prenda in a DC court today.

The FBI's massive biometric database may hold records on as much as one third of the U.S. population. Read about what else we learned about FBI facial recognition through our Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. 
New documents released by the FBI show that the Bureau is well on its way toward its goal of a fully operational face recognition database by this summer.

Under the outdated Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the SEC is trying to get emails without a warrant.

If this leads to long prison terms for banksters, I'd let the SEC continue.

Be very careful, some Doctor's Offices are posting too much information, in their Patient's Portal Website.

Australia should be getting fair use. But on the Attorney General's first official trip to the U.S., he seemed more interested in importing mass surveillance.

This doesn't surprise me in the least. Australia seems to be even more fascist than America, which is quite an astounding feat. Just look at their vile attitude toward aborigines, for example.

Defending your civil liberties in a digital world.
Introduction
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.

Blending the expertise of lawyers, policy analysts, activists, and technologists, EFF achieves significant victories on behalf of consumers and the general public. EFF fights for freedom primarily in the courts, bringing and defending lawsuits even when that means taking on the US government or large corporations. By mobilizing more than 150,000 concerned citizens through our Action Center, EFF beats back bad legislation. In addition to advising policymakers, EFF educates the press and public.

EFF is a donor-funded nonprofit and depends on your support to continue successfully defending your digital rights. Litigation is particularly expensive; because two-thirds of our budget comes from individual donors, every contribution is critical to helping EFF fight—and win—more cases.
