ACLU of Northern California Launches dotRights Privacy Campaign

We're excited to share the news that our friends at the ACLU of Northern California have just launched their dotRights privacy campaign, an impressive effort to spread the word about how online services collect and share reams of personal information about internet users. The entertaining and informative dotRights introductory video summarizes the issue, covering how companies can collect data about you and share that information with data brokers and the government, and how the laws meant to protect the privacy of your internet activities are woefully outdated. The dotRights site also has more detailed content on a range of privacy issues related to webmail, search engines, social networks and more, while giving activists a variety of ways to take action on those issues.

Learn more from the ACLU of Northern California's blog post about the launch, and visit to check out the campaign!
