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.

Defend Drone Sports in California

At events like Bay Area Maker Faire, hobbyists pit their customized personal drones against each other in aerial battle. But two bills before the California legislature could bring these fun and educational activities to a halt. Tell California lawmakers not to criminalize drone combat sports.

Tell the Senate: Fight Forced Arbitration

What are you really agreeing to when you select “I agree” on a click-through contract? Whether you know it or not, you’re often agreeing to waive a host of fundamental rights. That can even include your right to take the company to court.

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.

The ENCRYPT Act and the Secure Data Act are federal bills that will safeguard encryption and reject backdoors. Tell your representatives in Congress to co-sponsor these vital bills.
