EFF in the News
Facebookistan has 845 million people, and an economy that rivals many countries'. Brooke and Bob talk to Jillian York and Clay Shirky about the contours of Facebookistan, and how it effects life in the actual world we live in.
Katitza Rodríguez, abogada experta en temas de seguridad digital, privacidad y libertad de expresión es la directora de derechos internacionales de Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). Se opone a este proceso de registro celular y aboga por la protección de la privacidad y la seguridad de los usuarios. Rodríguez sitúa al proceso mexicano como ejemplo del fracaso y del riesgo que pueden correr los usuarios.
In an amicus curiae brief for Cox, the Electronic Frontier Foundation called for Hernandez to overturn the jury award as a threat to free speech, excessive, and based on the wrong standard of defamation law.
Groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union say it's nothing more than extortion. When such cases make it to court, they're usually thrown out, but the industry still sends the letters to tens of thousands of people every year on the assumption that some will settle — usually for $3,000 to $5,000 — because they're too scared to risk outing themselves as porn aficionados.
Innocent Megaupload users lost access to legal data when the federal government recently shut down the website, the Electronic Frontier Foundation claims, calling for the government to restore this material.
Digital rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation, meanwhile, praises Google's plan to simplify its privacy policies, but criticizes the company for doing a poor job of explaining what policy changes are actually being made.
Wong is one of 1,495 Internet users Hard Drive Productions has sued for copyright infringement since 2011, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based digital rights group.
Many of the defendants moved to quash subpoenas from Hard Drive aimed at revealing their identities, and most of the motions were filed under seal to protect their anonymity, the EFF said.
Namecheap has donated over $64,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation to help the organization fight for our digital rights. Namecheap also blacked out its front page on January 18th, urging US customers to petition their government officials to ask them to shelve both acts in the House and in the Senate.
The US-based digital rights group Electronic Frontier Foundation has since written a letter hinting it might begin its own legal action if the service providers consequently tried to wipe the data, now that they were no longer being paid by Megaupload to store it.
"Many innocent third parties... used Megaupload for wholly legal purposes and have since lost access to their data," wrote the organisation's legal director, Cindy Cohn.
While not everyone agrees with the EFF's position on various issues, the group is still pretty widely respected in legal circles. So it seems a bit odd that a copyright troll has apparently decided to spend an entire filing trying to block the EFF from filing an amicus brief ("friend of the court" brief) in one of its cases, attacking the EFF directly as some sort of "radical" and "quasi-anarchist" group.
