Yesterday, TechFreedom was profiled in Forbes for our continued efforts fighting for digital freedom:

TechFreedom has been on the ground, “[b]uilding bipartisan support for protections against government snooping in Americans’ private communications and location information…. We recruited other free-market organizations to join the Digital Due Process coalition, whose efforts to reform the outdated 1986 ECPA are gathering steam, especially after all nine Supreme Court justices in the Jones decision denounced warrantless GPS tracking and five called on Congress to act.”

Szoka said that TechFreedom has also been successful in “[b]uilding a diverse coalition in opposition to a sweeping ‘digital dragnet’ that would allow law enforcement to track the Internet use of every American.”

“Our view across the board is that government should meddle or intervene only when there’s a clear market failure or harm to consumers.” In other words, when it comes to government regulation, TechFreedom thinks less is most definitely more. And in those infrequent cases when the government needs to intervene, Szoka said, “The regulation of the law should be narrowly tailored to the problem. Let’s deal with each problem as it arises.”

“This is not just about government and government’s role: it’s about technology and whether or not it makes the world a better place.”
