Nina Paley is artist-in-residence here at Question Copyright, and we’re including this video in the Minute Memes series she’s doing. Copyright + Internet = Surveillance. We think your computer should work for you. So does the EFF. But not every government agrees — around the world, the copyright monopoly lobby wants Internet service providers to monitor their customers, filtering content and kicking people who share culture off the Internet. They’re pushing for so-called “three strikes” laws that would require ISPs to cut off the Internet connection of anyone who shares illegally three times.
Who do you want your computer to work for? The entertainment industry, or you and your friends?
Happy birthday, EFF, and keep up the good work!
