Tell your congressperson to vote NO to the PATRIOT Act! The PATRIOT reauthorization bill being fast-tracked to the House floor contains NO reforms to the law, and is expected to be voted upon any day now, likely with NO debate and NO opportunity for amendments to add oversight and accountability. Help stop this sneak attack on your civil liberties: tell your Congressperson to vote "NO" on H.R. 514, the PATRIOT extension bill.
A federal court has unsealed motions filed by the EFF, the ACLU, and others concerning government attempts to obtain Twitter account records in connection with its Wikileaks investigation. One motion asks for the unsealing of court records detailing the government's attempts to collect private records from Twitter as well as other companies who may have received demands for information from the government. The second motion seeks to overturn the court order requiring Twitter to provide information about its users.
EFF to Judge: Watch for Fairness in Mass Copyright Suits Judges across the country are cracking down on unfair
tactics by copyright trolls. EFF has asked a federal judge
in Washington, D.C. to do the same, urging her to consider
recent developments recognizing it is improper to join
thousands of people in one lawsuit based solely on the fact
that they all allegedly used the same software protocol to
share one or more copyrighted works.
