AnonOps Radio Interview

Friday 25 January 2013

Parker Higgins is an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, specializing in issues at the intersection of freedom of speech and copyright, trademark, and patent law. He talks about EFF role on the legal front of battles to protect online rights, including the Bills Anonymous opposed in OpBlackout, ACTA, SOPA and PIPA. Parker explains the risks of censorship and broad over reach of the Blacklist Bills hiding behind the the deceptive names of Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP. We are introduced to Aarons Law, inspired by the loss of Aaron Swartz who personifies the cost of judicial abuses for digital activists championing Internet freedoms.
