Electronic Frontier Foundation and Nina Paley

Somehow I missed this gem from Nina Paley.

From EFF: Here’s What You Saw

Onerous user agreements.
Users regularly click through monstrous blocks of legalese in order to use the most popular web sites and applications. Unfortunately, these agreements are frequently one-sided and rife with attempts to take away your rights. EFF informs users of various pitfalls, lobbies companies to make necessary improvements, and argues that certain rights should always remain intact.

Tracking and surveillance online.
Governments, advertisers, and websites are developing increasingly sophisticated methods of tracking what you read, watch, upload, and share on the web. EFF argues for your right to privacy, advocates for governments and companies to put meaningful limits on the collection and use of your personal data, and helps promote tools you can use to protect yourself.

“Three Strikes” and copyright cops.
Entertainment industry bigwigs worldwide want ISPs to monitor subscribers, filter content and kick users off the Internet for file-sharing. EFF is fighting worldwide for the protection of fair use, free expression, and fairness for all Internet users.
