It's copyright week... From phones to cars to refrigerators to farm equipment, software is helping our stuff work better and smarter. But those features come at a high hidden cost: the rapid erosion of ownership. Why does that matter? Because when it comes to digital products, owners have rights. Renters on the other hand, have only permission.
The EFF is taking part in Copyright Week, a series of actions and discussions supporting key principles that should guide copyright policy. All around the world, copyright policy is on the agenda. In the United States, lawmakers are nearly two years into a process that promises to lead to the "Next Great Copyright Act." We Internet users need to be part of that discussion.
