Title: Take action against unfair computer laws in the US
Post by: geekster on August 28, 2002, 07:37:03 AM
To all our U.S. Proxo brothers and sisters:

I just recently came across a website devoted to making your voice heard and rallying against bills being introduced in the U.S. that allow "vigilante" and "heavy-handed" tactics by special interest groups in the U.S. to legally break the law and retaliate against any threat to their interests, perceived or otherwise.  It is called the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF):  http://www.eff.org/.  

I urge all our U.S. Proxo brothers and sisters in this forum to visit this site and make their voices heard.  Basically, it provides an easy way to send an already well-written letter to their legislators in Congress, and will go to the appropriate person, based on the writer's address.  If you truly are concerned, this is a way to make your concerns known to the lawmakers.  The more voices that are heard, the more the lawmakers will have to listen (especially if they want to be re-elected).

Even if you do not, or cannot, send a message to them, this is an excellent site to keep informed of what battles are taking place in the "electronic frontier".
