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.

California: Protect Your Driver License Privacy

A bill sitting on Gov. Jerry Brown's desk would order the DMV to start issuing “Enhanced Driver Licenses” (EDL) with an RFID chip that could expose information about you from up to 30 feet away. And this EDL can also be a REAL ID (in case you thought that REAL ID was dead).

Let’s bring S.B. 249 to a screeching halt. Email Gov. Brown today that he should veto this invasive bill.

O Brasil Construiu Uma Das Melhores Leis Para Internet Do Mundo. Impeça o Congresso de Aprovar a Pior

O Marco Civil da Internet é a carta de direitos para a era digital construída com participação ampla e intensa da população. Após pouco mais de um ano de sua entrada em vigor, e antes mesmo de sua regulamentação, alguns políticos estão planejando sua destruição. Um novo projeto de lei, o PL215/2015, permite aos que estão no poder censurar a Internet e exige que os internautas brasileiros entreguem seus dados pessoais ao acessar qualquer aplicativo de celular ou site. Caso requisitados, todos esses dados poderão ser disponibilizados para as autoridades mesmo SEM ordem judicial. Diga ao Congresso para votar Não.

Tell the World's Lawmakers: Online Spying is Out of Control

Mass surveillance and other intrusive monitoring of your digital life are violations of international human rights law. We, and a global coalition of privacy experts, wrote a guide to writing surveillance law that respects privacy. It's called the Necessary and Proportionate Principles. Join hundreds of thousands who have signed onto its ideals now.

Obama act 2

Save Crypto

Certain members of Congress and the FBI want to force companies to give the government special access to our data. Tell Obama that weakening encryption weakens the entire Internet.

Tell Congress: CFAA Is Broken. Don’t Make It Worse.

A proposed amendment to the terrible Cyber Information Sharing Act would expand the broken Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Tell the Senate to reject this reckless expansion of computer crime law.
