Keep Safe Harbors Safe

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act safe harbors are a vital protection for websites and Internet services of all sizes. But thanks to a new Copyright Office policy, website owners could lose safe harbor protections if they don’t register online by December 31. And that’s not all: Hollywood lobbyists are pushing the Copyright Office to eliminate safe harbor protections altogether.

If you own a website, don’t forget to re-register with the Copyright Office in 2017. Whether you own a website or not, sign our letter telling the Office to keep safe harbors safe.

Net neutrality is under attack. The FCC is about to approve a proposal to roll back the critical net neutrality protections in the Open Internet Order. We can’t let that happen. It’s time to tell your lawmakers: Don’t let the FCC sell the Internet out.

Stop the Burr Bill From Extending NSA Spying 8 Years

One of the NSA’s most powerful surveillance programs—which sweeps up the communications, emails and text messages of many U.S. persons—is scheduled to expire at the end of 2017. But a dangerous new bill seeks to enshrine this unconstitutional spying for the next eight years. Congress must stop it.

End the NSA's Backdoor to the Internet

A new bill before the U.S. House of Representatives leaves Americans woefully unprotected from having their communications searched by intelligence community and law enforcement agencies. With your help, we can make it clear that American communications need to be protected from warrantless search.

Biometrics

No Airport Biometric Surveillance

A dangerous new bill could bring facial recognition, fingerprinting, retina scans, and other forms of invasive biometric data extraction to U.S. domestic airports. Join EFF in opposing expansive biometric surveillance in our airports.

Keep Publicly Funded Research Public. Move FASTR.

When we pay for federally funded research, we should be allowed to read it. That’s the simple premise of FASTR, the Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act (S.1701, H.R.3427).

A federal open access law is long overdue. Let's send a strong message to lawmakers: we can’t stall on open access for another year. It’s time to move FASTR.

Congress, Don't Sell the Internet Out

Net neutrality is under serious threat. Right now, the FCC is considering a proposal to roll back the critical net neutrality protections in the Open Internet Order. We can’t let that happen. It’s time to tell your lawmakers: Don’t let the FCC sell the Internet out.

Don't Let Congress Censor the Internet

There’s a new bill in Congress that would threaten your right to free expression online. If that weren’t enough, it could also put small Internet businesses in danger of catastrophic litigation.

Don’t let its name fool you: the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA) wouldn’t help punish sex traffickers. What it would do is expose the Internet content platforms that we all rely on every day to the risk of overwhelming criminal and civil liability for their customers’ actions.

Tell Congress: Don’t Make Internet Spying Powers Permanent

The U.S. government’s Internet spying powers are set to expire at the end of this year. As Congress considers the looming deadline for reauthorization, lawmakers should be looking to rein in warrantless spying on millions of innocent people, not trying to make it permanent.
