Keep Your Friends Close But Your Enemies Closer?
I have issue with the EFF ... I don't support their multi-faceted attack against Apple Computer concerning iTunes DRM and concerning bloggers ... yet I respect both efforts.
It is for this purpose I decided to contribute to the EFF so as to be recognized by them and by this BLOG.
While I do not support Think Secret, AppleInsider, and The PowerPage (previously represented by the EFF) ... mainly due to the simple fact that the content of their reporting was illegal - trade secrets. I do support the EFF in trying to stand up to big corporations who wish to supress bloggers simply by the fact or nature of calling them "blogs".
Everything aside I think the EFF generally represents with "good intentions" although doesn't necessarily think about the outcome or the expense that they pass on to the very people they are fighting for - iTunes customers for instance. You can almost be assured that Apple passes "litigation costs" onto each every customer.
So ... ironically (even though I disagree most times) I am going to express my support for the EFF on this blog.
It's just hard to know whether the EFF is my friend or my enemy ...
