Privacy info. This embed will serve content from archive.org

EFF's defense of your digital rights is needed now more than ever. From onerous user agreements with monstrous blocks of legalese that take away your rights, to new forms of tracking and surveillance that erode your privacy as you use the Internet, to international efforts to force ISPs to monitor subscribers and become "copyright cops," the threats to our freedom and rights online continue.

Support EFF and help us continue to fight for your digital rights for another 20 years!

And see Nina Paley in San Francisco on July 20th for a showing of her fantastic feature length opus, "Sita Sings the Blues." A benefit for EFF and the Cartoon Art Museum, Nina will introduce the film and answer questions from members of the audience. Get your tickets now!
