  2. We have no evidence that any of this surveillance makes us safer.

    the loss of privacy, freedom, and liberty is much more damaging to our society than the occasional act of random violence.

    We need to work toward security, even if other countries like China continue to use the Internet as a giant surveillance platform. We need to build a coalition of free-world nations dedicated to a secure global Internet, and we need to continually push back against bad actors -- both state and non-state -- that work against that goal.

  4. Este asunto, que pasa desapercibido en un clima de corrupción política y crisis económica, es probablemente el caso más evidente de sustracción de competencias al poder judicial por parte del ejecutivo tras el dictado por los primeros de resoluciones que no gustaban a los segundos
  5. Si nos atenemos a la Constitución, a cualquier constitución, no son thrillers ni capítulos de telenovelas lo que estamos relatando sino crímenes hábilmente encubiertos, flagrantes vulneraciones de derechos y libertades y ataques directos a nuestra privacidad.
  6. When the small companies can no longer operate, it's another step in the consolidation of the surveillance society.

  7. It's easy to assume that both Black and Hayden were lying, but I believe them. I believe that, 15 years ago, the NSA was entirely focused on intercepting communications outside the US.

    What changed? What caused the NSA to abandon its non-US charter and start spying on Americans? From what I've read, and from a bunch of informal conversations with NSA employees, it was the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That's when everything changed, the gloves came off, and all the rules were thrown out the window. That the NSA's interests coincided with the business model of the Internet is just a -- lucky, in their view -- coincidence.
  8. We call on the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and its member organizations to reject the Encrypted Media Extensions proposal (EME), which would incorporate support for Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) into HTML.

    EME would be an irreversible step backward for freedom on the Web. It would endorse and enable business models that unethically restrict users, and it would make subjugation to particular media companies a precondition for full Web citizenship. Just as Flash and Silverlight are finally dying off, we should not replace them with the media giants’ latest control fantasy.

    Furthermore, EME contradicts the W3C’s core values. It would hamper interoperability by encouraging the proliferation of DRM plugins. It would fly in the face of the W3C’s principle of keeping the Web royalty-free — this is simply a back door for media companies to require proprietary player software. It is willful ignorance to pretend otherwise just because the proposal does not mention particular technologies or DRM schemes by name.

    W3C and member organizations: don’t weave DRM into the fabric of the Web.
  9. The reason it matters whether LBT is covered is that if it is then it would either be necessary to join (£££) the regulatory process or to face certain (rather than not quite certain) financial ruin should someone commence a legal process about any of the content of the blog — and since our group’s academic work is occasionally contentious, that’s not just a theoretical risk.

    It’s clearly most unsatisfactory that legislation this important is so unclear, and that the Government are determined to rush it through Parliament within days rather than thinking the complexities through… the 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act is usually cited as the poster child for knee-jerk legislation that is much the worse for the rush to put it on the statute books. We seem to be heading the same way here.
