Border act 1

Demand Border Agents Get a Warrant Before Digital Searches

Cell phones, laptops, and other digital devices shouldn’t be subject to unfettered search by the U.S. government at the border. Email Congress today and tell your lawmakers to support the Protecting Data at the Border Act (S. 823/H.R. 1899), a bill to require that border agents get a warrant based on probable cause to search our digital devices at the border.

They want your broadband provider to be able to sell your sensitive Internet activity records to the highest bidder.

Maryland: Keep State University Patents Away from Trolls

When state universities invent, those inventions should benefit everyone. Unfortunately, they sometimes end up in the hands of patent trolls, companies that serve no purpose but to amass patents and demand money from other innovators and inventors. State-funded universities should seek to accelerate innovation in their states and around the world. Arming trolls with patents does just the opposite.

Act blueandblacklock

Tell Congress to investigate CBP social media monitoring

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently proposed to ask travelers from countries on the State Department’s Visa Waiver Program list to provide their “social media identifier." Handing over a list of social media accounts to the government undermines freedom of expression, international law, and individual privacy. Tell the U.S. Congress to investigate.
