Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world.  They are truly a valuable as a proponent for the average guy protecting free speech, fair use, protection of innovation and ensuring that new technologies don’t invade our privacy.

In addition to all of their valuable services they also have a fun monthly article where they discuss questionable patents.
