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.

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.

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.

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.

Demand Transparency in Trade Deals

When trade agreements are negotiated in secret, the public loses out. There’s a new bill in Congress that would require the U.S. to make drafts of trade agreements available to the public.

Let’s make sure that future trade agreements put people first, not corporations. Tell your representative to co-sponsor the Promoting Transparency in Trade Act.
