ELECTRONIC FRONTIER FOUNDATION DEBUTS
“RADIO EFF” ON LIVE365
Foster City, CA – (October 23, 2001) - EFF - The Electronic Frontier Foundation has launched Radio EFF on Live365. Radio EFF uses audio programming to help people better understand how technologies and laws interact, impacting everyone’s freedoms and civil liberties.
Radio EFF’s programming includes interviews and panel discussions with the people who are on the front lines defending freedom of expression in Cyberspace. EFF staff attorneys and activists regularly appear discussing ongoing litigation and legislation that will determine the future freedoms of the individual, in the digital age.
“Having the ability to share ideas is critical to the preservation of liberty. Radio EFF and Live 365 are working together to amplify the issues and events shaping the future of freedom online,” said Patrick Norager, Radio EFF’s Station Manager. As more and more people learn about their rights in cyberspace, these freedoms become more difficult to diminish or dismantle. “Public education is a significant source of our success at EFF, and through audio, our message, and the message of freedom can travel farther faster.”
“We are thrilled to provide a forum for the EFF, and to help facilitate the important dialogue being offered relating to the protection of civil liberties in the digital space, ” said John Jeffrey, Executive Vice President of Live365, Inc. “Through our Broadcasting Services, we strive to provide an opportunity for any individual or organization to use our tools to provide their viewpoints, share their content, and exercise their Right to Free Speech.”
