Digital Freedom Campaign Launches to Champion the Public's Rights in the Copyfight

Today, the Digital Freedom campaign was launched by a broad coalition of groups including the Consumer Electronics Association, EFF, Public Knowledge, and the Media Access Project.

"Digital technology enables literally anyone and everyone to be a creator, an innovator or an artist -- to produce music, to create cutting-edge videos and photos, and to share their creative work. Digital technology empowers individuals to enjoy these new works when, where, and how they want, and to participate in the artistic process. These are basic freedoms that must be protected and nurtured.

"The Digital Freedom campaign is dedicated to defending the rights of students, artists, innovators, and consumers to create and make lawful use of new technologies free of unreasonable government restrictions and without fear of costly and abusive lawsuits."

Too often, the entertainment industry has been able to steer Congress' policy agenda towards draconian restrictions on innovation and fans' legitimate use of digital devices. It's high time to turn the tables and set a new, positive agenda for copyright. This campaign is another important step in the right direction.
