California: Demand Community Control of Police Surveillance

SB 1186 is a proposed law that would subject the acquisition of police surveillance technology across California to public oversight. Modeled on successful local laws in Oakland, Santa Clara County, and elsewhere across the country, it would end an era of secrecy and expand democratic transparency. EFF supports SB 1186 and encourages the legislature to reject further changes and enact the law as currently drafted.

Stop Another Expansion of Copyright: Tell the Senate to Vote No on S. 2823

Copyright law already ties up creative works for too long in too many ways, preventing the public from making use of old works. S. 2823 would add a whole new barrier to using old music recordings while doing little more than allow record companies to wring more money out of recordings they’ve already monetized for decades.

Tell the Senate to reject S. 2823 and prevent another expansion of copyright that provides no benefit for the public.

California: Demand Accountability for Law Enforcement Surveillance Technology

Police departments should not have the unilateral authority to decide which privacy invasions are in the public interest. The public must have a say in the surveillance technologies that police acquire and how they deploy them. And elected officials must have veto power: the authority to decide what surveillance systems do not belong in our communities.

Help California Secure Net Neutrality Protections: Support S.B. 822 and S.B. 460

Internet users were already at the mercy of ISPs, like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon before the FCC repealed net neutrality protections. Now they don’t have to treat everything you access online equally. A new bill in California would provide strong protections for an open and free Internet.

Californians: say you support net neutrality and S.B. 822 and S.B. 460.

Stop SESTA/FOSTA

We all rely on online communities to work, socialize, and learn. From the largest social media sites to the smallest message board, online platforms are central to our right to assemble and speak out. SESTA and FOSTA would put all of us at risk of being shut out of those spaces.

Stop Europe's Copyright Censorship and Link Tax Plans

The Internet wouldn't be what it is without platforms such as Reddit, Medium, Soundcloud, DeviantArt, and thousand more, that allow creative content and news to be accessed and shared online. Europe's Digital Single Market Directive could change how they work forever.

Stop the Senate from Extending NSA Spying

Every day, the U.S. government sweeps up the emails, text messages, and other online communications of millions of innocent Americans. The Senate has a chance to rein in this unconstitutional spying on January 16 by voting against S. 139, a recent bill that, if passed, will instead extend the surveillance law for six more years.

Save the Open Internet Order

The FCC just voted to roll back the Open Internet Order, giving Internet service providers free rein to engage in unfair data discrimination practices. But it’s not too late: Congress can still save the existing net neutrality rules.
