We are fighting for your right to own your music and fix your phone. Ask EFF, iFixit, and Public Knowledge how the internet is reclaiming copyright.
Do you really own your stuff, or are you just licensing it?
Consumer rights work differently when it comes to digital, as opposed to physical, objects. That's because digital objects come burdened with all kinds of copyright restrictions. And as the line between physical and digital blurs - as we move more fully into the internet of things - copyright laws may crowd out ownership rights. If we want to keep our rights -- if we want to be owners, not renters -- we will have to fight for those rights now, before it's too late.
So we're doing just that. Kyle wrote an editorial in Wired explaining where we're at right now.
Things you can do now!
- Sign iFixit's repair pledge
- Join up with EFF's copyright week campaign
- Talk to your friends and local business groups about Right to Repair: (iFixit) (EFF)
Together, we can make a difference. But it's going to take persistence and imagination.
- Kyle Wiens of iFixit, the intrepid free repair manual
- Sherwin Siy of Public Knowledge, the DC-based internet freedom fighters
- Corynne McSherry, chief intellectual property badass at EFF
- Parker Higgins, EFF rabble-rouser extraordinaire
- Sina Khanifar, cell phone unlocking and digital rights crusader
No, we don't know why the safe was empty.
