EFF Turns 16 Today
Today EFF turns 16, and though much has changed over the years, we remain on the frontlines fighting for your rights. Like our current suit against AT&T, our very first case sought to protect your privacy from unwarranted invasion. On July 10, 1990, EFF was founded and our suit in Steve Jackson Games v. US Secret Service set one of the first precedents establishing that it is illegal for law enforcement to access and read private electronic mail without a warrant.
From day one, we've achieved landmark victories -- please consider giving us a birthday present and donating to EFF today so that we can keep up the fight for many years to come. We're proud to be in this role, and we'd like to thank all of you for your support through the years.
And if you're interested in learning more about EFF's founding, check out "Across the Electronic Frontier," published by EFF Founders Mitch Kapor and John Perry Barlow on July 10, 1990. Barlow also published on November 8, 1990 an article entitled "A Not Terribly Brief History of the Electronic Frontier Foundation."
