EFF launches Bloggers Rights fundraiser

Cory Doctorow: Support Bloggers' Rights! EFF has launched a Bloggers' Rights fundraising campaign. Bloggers are asked to put a badge on their sidebars encouraging people to sign up for EFF, and in return bloggers get premiums like tees and hats. More importantly, though, they get the freedom that EFF works to safeguard for all users of the Internet, defending your right to speak freely without fear of censorship, snooping or suppression.

EFF has won fights to require the cops to get a warrant before reading your email, to knock out parts of the PATRIOT Act, to kill frivolous copyright and trademark suits aimed at silencing criticism and innumerable other critical pieces of the struggle to keep the Internet free and open.

Boing Boing's got an EFF fundraiser badge. All the Gawker media, PVRBlog, Searchblog, and lots of other sites are following suit. So are personal blogs like Neil Gaiman's site, John Scalzi's Whatever, Anil Dash, and lots of others too. I hope you'll consider adding the badge to your site and helping us to keep the Internet free. Link
