  1. EFF Partners with DuckDuckGo to Enhance Secure Browsing and Protect User Information on the Web DuckDuckGo Smarter Encryption Will Be Incorporated Into HTTPS Everywhere San Francisco, California—Boosting protection of Internet users’ personal data from snooping advertisers and third-party trackers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) today announced it has enhanced its groundbreaking HTTPS Everywhere browser extension by incorporating rulesets from DuckDuckGo Smarter Encryption. The partnership represents the next step in the evol
  2. US Senator Thom Tillis has asked various stakeholders to shed light on possible DMCA reforms, including easier website blocking options and a notice-and-staydown regime. These potential changes will be welcomed by major copyright holders but groups such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Re:Create, and Public Knowledge are fiercely against. When the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) was introduced in 1998, file-sharing was a fringe activity, and online streaming a futuristic idea. The developments over the past two decades ha
  3. University student and security researcher Erik Johnson is fighting back after proctoring software company Proctorio sent a series of DMCA notices to suppress his criticism of its controversial 'spying' tool. After his project was taken down from Github, Johnson has now filed a counter-notice and is prepared to appear in court, assisted by the EFF. With millions of students working remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic, the use of so-called proctoring software has skyrocketed. The stated aim of this software is to detect and prevent cheat
  4. This week GitHub reversed an RIAA takedown by reinstating the youtube-dl repository. The Microsoft-owned developer platform, together with the EFF, sent a clear message that YouTube downloaders are not by definition illegal. This outspoken support is not only good news for youtube-dl, it might also be a gamechanger for the lawsuits against 2conv, Flvto, and Yout. The music industry is convinced. Downloading music from public streaming services, YouTube in particular, is the greatest piracy threat to the industry. The RIAA and several key mus
  5. The lawsuit, which comes after multiple Motherboard investigations into phone location data selling, is seeking an injunction against AT&T which would try to enforce the deletion of any sold data. Tuesday, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a class action lawsuit against AT&T and two data brokers over their sale of AT&T customers' real-time location data. The lawsuit seeks an injunction against AT&T, which would ban the company from selling any more customer location data and ensure that any already sold data is destroyed.
  6. EFF has an encryption plan for the entire internet Spurred by government surveillance of data, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is making progress toward its goal of encrypting all internet traffic using technology and scorecards. Thinkstock If there is one technology that best protects internet users from scammers, hackers and nation-state threat actors it’s encryption. Fortunately, the web is currently undergoing a massive transformation from a non-secure HTTP format, the initial underlying protocol for all communications on the we
  7. Starz Goes on Twitter Meta-Censorship Spree to Cover Up TV-Show Leaks American entertainment giant Starz is continuing to remove tweets that link to a TorrentFreak news report about leaked TV-shows. Even worse, it's also targeting our follow-up article that discusses the overbroad takedown effort. These notices are having the opposite effect, however, as they're only encouraging more people to share our coverage. Last week we posted a news article documenting how several TV-show episodes had leaked online before their official release. Due to the leaks, c
  8. EFF tells Twitter to encrypt DMs after hacking incident The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has reiterated to Twitter that it should subject all direct messages (DMs) to end-to-end encryption to provide users with more privacy and security. The digital rights organization has been calling for this for years but the most recent breach has pushed it to demand the feature again. The EFF said that with hackers gaining access to admin tools at Twitter, encrypting the DMs would have meant hackers couldn’t have seen the contents of direct messages, offering mo
  9. EFF, ACLU SoCal Successfully Sued Los Angeles Police and Sheriff’s Departments For ALPR Data San Francisco—Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California (ACLU SoCal) have reached an agreement with Los Angeles law enforcement agencies under which the police and sheriff’s departments will turn over license plate data they indiscriminately collected on millions of law-abiding drivers in Southern California. The data, which has been deidentified to protect drivers’ privacy, will allow EFF and ACLU SoCal t
  10. from the violating-the-law-on-the-regular dept More evidence of the NSA's abuse of its surveillance powers has surfaced, thanks to a FOIA lawsuit by the EFF. To date, the EFF has secured 73 FISC opinions as the result of this lawsuit and is still fighting for the release of six opinions the government has chosen to withhold entirely. One of the opinions released to the EFF shows the NSA's frequent assertions about proper minimization, careful deployment of surveillance techniques, and supposedly robust oversight are mostly false. The NSA abuses its powers an
