San Francisco: It’s Time to Stop Secret Surveillance Programs in Our City

The people of San Francisco deserve to have a voice in whether city departments may acquire and use surveillance technology.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will soon vote on the Stop Secret Surveillance Ordinance—critical legislation drafted to ensure that San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors, after inviting an opportunity for input from the people of our city, control whether or not police and other city departments may acquire powerful surveillance technologies.

Now is the time for you to tell the Board of Supervisors to end the days of secret surveillance technologies that unfairly target the people of San Francisco.

Prevent Copyright Trolling: Tell Congress that Copyright Claims Can’t Be Treated Like Traffic Tickets

The way copyright works in the United States does need changing. But the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act), which will treat certain copyright claims like traffic tickets, does nothing to make any useful changes. Instead, it would invite abuse, magnify the existing problem of copyright’s unpredictable damages, and would give a lot of authority to a new, quasi-judicial body in the Copyright Office, not the actual courts.

In other words, if you’re looking for an answer to the problem of people improperly using copyrighted material online, this ain’t it, chief.

End the NSA's Call Detail Records Program Once and for All

Over nearly two decades, the NSA has searched millions of Americans’ telephone call records—all without a warrant or, for the vast majority of these calls, any suspicion of wrongdoing.

It’s time to end the mass telephone Call Detail Records (CDR) program once and for all. Tell your members of Congress to support the Ending Mass Collection of Americans’ Phone Records Act (S. 936, H.R. 1942).
