EFF: About: "About EFF
From the Internet to the iPod, technologies of freedom are
transforming our society and empowering us as speakers, citizens,
creators, and consumers. These technologies are increasingly under
attack, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the first line
of defense, protecting our civil liberties in the networked world.
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 50,000 concerned citizens through our Action Center, EFF beats back bad legislation.
In addition to advising policymakers, EFF educates the press and
public. Sometimes just defending technologies isn't enough, so EFF
also helps fund and build freedom-enhancing inventions.
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
