Electronic Frontiers Foundation

Established, July 1990

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading nonprofit organisation defending civil liberties in the digital world.

“The Electronic Frontier Foundation was founded in July of 1990 in response to a basic threat to speech… The Steve Jackson Games case turned out to be an extremely important one in the development of a proper legal framework for cyberspace.” This landmark case in the United States established that email should have at the very least the same protections as a telephone call under the law. “EFF’s international team advocates for privacy, free speech, and an open Internet in international venues and across the world. We expose mass and unwarranted surveillance, and educate unlawfully targeted users on how to protect themselves and their colleagues.”

FREE SPEECH | PRIVACY

“New technology offers the promise of speech with minimal barriers and without borders. The Internet has radically enhanced our ability to express ourselves and our ability to access, archive, and share information. Everyone should be able to take advantage of this promise.”

“New technologies are radically advancing our freedoms, but they are also enabling unparalleled invasions of privacy. National and international laws have yet to catch up with the evolving need for privacy that comes with new digital technologies.”
