Title: Help save podcasting.
Post by: Gorkamorka on May 31, 2013, 04:36:00 PM
The EFF (Electronic Frontiers Foundation) is taking on patent trolls targeting podcasts.  But it's going to cost some serious money so they are asking for help.  If you can spare a few $ head over HERE (https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2013/05/help-save-podcasting) and help out.  If you are short on cash, help spread the word.

If you are wondering who the EFF are, they are the an international non-profit digital rights group that have picked up the gloves and taken on some big legal battles for digital rights.  They are the real deal.  My favourite is when they took on the US Secret Service after they raided Steve Jackson games (Makers of GURPS) in 1990.  (Whole story HERE (http://www.sjgames.com/SS/))  The short of it is, that without the EFF there would be no GURPS to day.

Ross.  I will be rather disappointed if this does not get mentioned on the next episode.
