A "Bat Signal" for the Internet | Electronic Frontier Foundation
A "Bat Signal" for the Internet | Electronic Frontier Foundation:
"Earlier this year, EFF worked with Internet defenders across the globe to beat back SOPA, a U.S. Internet censorship bill that would have sacrificed the free speech rights of users in the name of fighting online “piracy.” Concerted action by millions of Internet users killed SOPA, but we know that protecting online rights takes vigilance. In fact, SOPA supporters are already pushing their censorship agenda through new bills, secret international trade agreements, and “voluntary” agreements negotiated between Big Content and service providers. And the threats don’t stop there: our rights to communicate and browse the web in private are also at risk, thanks to proposed Big Brother surveillance measures."
