Bullies picking on people who are different from the majority. That's how I see it. There was a time when people we bullied for being left-handed. These things take time to get accepted, but it all eventually passes.

Fight for the Future (FFTF), a new organization vowing to fight for Americans' tech freedoms, warns Justin Bieber and his fans that the teen pop sensation could suffer five brutal years in prison if bill S.978 becomes law.

S.978 would criminalize precisely what Bieber (and his mom) did to

"Video containing any copyrighted work" -- if I hold up a book, is that a felony too?

Take action to keep DRM out of the HTML5 standard. The open web is no place for anti-user technology.

Google's report on government requests for personal information on Google users.
