Legislative Reform

In the Reporting Period, we advocated for stronger encryption, privacy, and security practices. We ran a large scale education campaign on encryption, proposed Surveillance Principles for government adoption, spoke out on the importance of disclosing security vulnerabilities to affected companies in judicial proceedings, and joined with other tech companies to file a brief arguing against backdoors in the Apple and FBI dispute and a letter to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee opposing legislation that would compel companies to disclose the content of user communications without judicial oversight.

In the realm of copyright, we filed comment on two U.S. Copyright Office consultations (here and here) and spoke out about the European Commission’s proposed overhaul of the EU’s copyright laws (here and here). We also commented on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission recently proposed framework for broadband privacy. In addition, we launched the Secure Open Source Fund to promote security auditing and patching of widely used open source technologies and our Lean Data Initiative to encourage companies to be responsible in their use and stewardship of data.
