Stop the Government’s Tattoo Recognition Experiments

Government researchers and the FBI are trying to crack the codes in our tattoos. They’re developing tattoo recognition technology with the aim of using our ink to reveal who we are, what we believe, and who we’re connected to. These experiments exploit prisoners without proper oversight and with little regard for privacy, civil liberties, or human dignity.

The good news is we may have time to stop it.

Telecommunications companies use forced arbitration clauses to rob their customers of their right to resolve a dispute in court. Let’s tell the Senate to put an end to this unfair practice.

Tell Congress: No Beijing Veto On Video Speech

A new proposal to change copyright law could create major new restrictions on filmmakers, citizen journalists, and other creators using footage that includes “audiovisual performances.” These changes would cast a shadow of legal uncertainty over recording and using videos and inaugurate a new chokepoint on speech.
