Why gamers should join www.EFF.org to protect their Cyberliberties

1) Governments of this world want to Censor the Internet and control what content you can see, hear, download etc...

2) There is no law protecting you from Spyware and no law against Spyware being put on your computer without your Knowledge and consent!

3) About 85% of all the top 100 websites on the internet use Cookies which track your Internet Behavior on the internet without your Knowledge or Consent!

4) Both the RIAA and MPAA are trying to pass laws thru congress that ban all downloading and all file sharing on the internet regardless of the file types or who created the content!

5) Both Governments and Business are forcing ISP's to keep track of their consumers Websurfing habits and also save all of their consumers emails via database without your Knowledge and consent!

6) Common System and network Admin tools are being seen by governments and big business as Illegal Hacker programs and thus using these tools will be Illegal even if the use of the tool is for common System and Network Administration.

7) If you purchase Defective software you have no legal recourse and No Legal Rights against the company that created the defective software!

8) Governments (UN, EU, US Government) are passing laws that Ban free speech on the internet! and shut down websites they deem a "threat" and you have no legal recourse or legal rights!

9) You have no legal rights on the Internet and World Wide Web! You do not have the right of freedom of Speech, The Right to privacy, You are not innocent until proven guilty, you have no Cyberliberties at all and things are getting worse and not better!

If people do not fight to defend their freedom it is only a matter of time when they will have none and If you do not fight to gain freedom, your not a patriot but a slave."

-Winston Churchill

No, but plenty of free software to take it off

3) About 85% of all the top 100 websites on the internet use Cookies which track your Internet Behavior on the internet without your Knowledge or Consent!

Thanks to MS, cookies are now much more secure. They can no longer be used to track activity outside of domain 4) Both the RIAA and MPAA are trying to pass laws thru congress that ban all downloading and all file sharing on the internet regardless of the file types or who created the content! Will never happen. I don't believe they would even try, its a waste of money. 5) Both Governments and Business are forcing ISP's to keep track of their consumers Websurfing habits and also save all of their consumers emails via database without your Knowledge and consent! Don't believe this either, it would be much more known 6) Common System and network Admin tools are being seen by governments and big business as Illegal Hacker programs and thus using these tools will be Illegal even if the use of the tool is for common System and Network Administration. Nope. using hacking tools is not illegal, only hacking. Writing a virus to destroy your own system is perfectly legal. 7) If you purchase Defective software you have no legal recourse and No Legal Rights against the company that created the defective software! If you don't agree with the licence dont buy it. 8) Governments (UN, EU, US Government) are passing laws that Ban free speech on the internet! and shut down websites they deem a "threat" and you have no legal recourse or legal rights! Can't happen, Internet is too big, and international. And Child Pornography is not free speech

So, I don't think so.
