is the leading 

organization defending civil liberties in the digital world. We defend 

free speech on the Internet, fight illegal surveillance, promote the 

rights of innovators to develop new digital technologies, and work to 

ensure that the rights and freedoms we enjoy are enhanced — 

rather than eroded — as our use of technology grows.
