General Information About the Electronic Frontier Foundation
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is a membership organization
that was founded in July of 1990 to ensure that the principles embodied
in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are protected as new
communications technologies emerge.
>From the beginning, EFF has worked to shape our nation's communications
infrastructure and the policies that govern it in order to maintain and
enhance First Amendment, privacy and other democratic values. We believe
that our overriding public goal must be the creation of Electronic
Democracy, so our work focuses on the establishment of:
o new laws that protect citizens' basic Constitutional rights as
they use new communications technologies,
o a policy of common carriage requirements for all network
providers so that all speech, no matter how controversial, will be
carried without discrimination,
o a National Public Network where voice, data and video services
are accessible to all citizens on an equitable and affordable basis, and
o a diversity of communities that enable all citizens to have a
voice in the information age.
