Arbitration act 2

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.

Combata os novos PLs autoritários contra cibercrimes no Brasil

A Comissão Parlamentar de Inquérito da Câmara dos Deputados sobre Crimes Cibernéticos - CPICIBER - recomendou a criação de não um, mas sete novos projetos de lei relacionados ao uso da Internet no Brasil. As propostas vão contra o espírito colaborativo do Marco Civil da Internet e retrocedem nas salvaguardas existentes para a liberdade de expressão e privacidade online. Diga aos parlamentares para rejeitarem o relatório da CPICIBER!

Tell Brazilian lawmakers to reject the CPICIBER report!

Tell Congress: Defend Encryption

The FBI may have backed off its attempts to strong-arm Apple into building a backdoor to the iPhone, but the fight over crypto is far from over. 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.

Publicly Funded Research Should Belong to the Public. Move FASTR.

When we pay for federally funded research, we should be allowed to read it. That’s the simple premise of the Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act (S. 779), which now has a real chance at passing.

Let’s send a clear message to the Senate: we can’t stall on open access for another year. It’s time to move FASTR.

Fight Patent Trolls: Support the VENUE Act of 2016

For years, patent trolls have exploited a rule that lets them file disputes in any court in the U.S. Cases should be litigated in courts that have a meaningful connection to the dispute, not where one party thinks it can get an advantage. The VENUE Act would make the process of determining venue more fair for both sides.

Tell the Senate: stop letting trolls abuse this loophole. Pass the VENUE Act.
