The Open Rights Group is 5 years old today! For half a decade they have worked tirelessly to ensure that the civil rights that most of us hold dear in the physical world are protected and defended in the digital world.
This year alone they have been tackling such diverse issues as the flawed Digital Economy Act, the secretly negotiated international ACTA agreement, and proposals for the BBC to embed DRM into their HD broadcasts.
Many of these fights are ongoing and there are many more on the horizon, so if you can, and if you care about civil rights regardless of the medium in which you’re interacting, maybe you could support the Open Rights Group.
I designed the 5th birthday icon for ORG as part of their celebrations and in support fo their great work.
