Bloggers Of The World: Did You Know You Have RIghts ?

Bloggers' Rights at EFF 

Anyone who has followed this blog more than a few days knows RyukyuMike likes photography, the Ryukyu Islands, travel, wildlife, dogs, pretty women (maybe, some not so pretty women), children, humor and beer not necessarily in any particular orderI like to laugh and joke.  I like to see people lend a helping hand to other people.  Today, without any humor,  I want to tell you something about the Electronic Frontier Foundation.  

I am a contributing member, (giving them a small annual donation) and if you are a blogger you should consider joining, too.  

You don't have to give them a penny if you don't want to.  It's absolutely FREE.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is a USA based non-profit organization that is looking after the rights you have as a blogger. It doesn't matter where in the world you do your blogging or what country you may be a citizen of.  These folks work to protect individuals like you and I from government interference, legal threats and violations of our personal freedoms as writers.

Living in Okinawa, Japan I am not too concerned with every dingbat lawsuit I read about going on back in the good old USA.  So, I can't say every action the EFF takes gets 100% of my support.  But,  when it comes to bloggers rights, you just can't beat them.  Go have a look, yourself by clicking on the banner above.  

When you get to the site take a peek at some of my favorites:

BLOGGER'S RIGHTS and TEACHING COPYRIGHT.  You can learn a lot.  And it's FREE !
