The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is, once again, sounding the alarm over the Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA).
As countries start experimenting with Online Harms laws, a recent initiative by the EFF beautifully demonstrates why we should be wary.
The EFF points out that alleged fixes to KOSA don’t go far enough, explaining why it’s still a censorship bill.
The EFF is warning that the UN Cybercrime Treaty could have implications for billions of people – particularly with privacy and free speech among others.
The threat of link taxes in the US has been averted as they won’t be part of the year end “must pass” bills.

Platforms that are billing themselves as “free speech” alternatives are censoring nudity. The EFF called them out for it.
Does the police have the authority to obtain the identities of anyone who searched for a specific keyword? The EFF says ‘no’.
US lawmakers are pushing a link tax law which goes by the name of the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act. The EFF pushed back.
The EFF’s big court case, NSA vs. Jewel, has been dismissed by the US Supreme Court because the program is “too secret”.
