Hi,

In case you missed it, here is the latest DRM-related article by FSF
campaigns manager Greg Farough.

Excellent.  Increasing the new coverage of that campaign is important so
it is great to have that post describing the situation.

Some years ago, before the EFF seemed to go dormant and Mozilla became
financially dependent on its biggest competitor, there was talk of an
Internet Defense League to defend the free and open web:

Perhaps it is time to mobilize the EFF, Mozilla, Fight for the Future,
and others to shine that old warning signal¹ across the web and
coordinate action.  Dusting that off that old but successful campaign to
use it again would be in and of itself news and a boost awareness of the
current threat and what needs to  be done to address it.

Or failing that, just roust them from their apparent torpor to stand up
visibly for the Free and Open Web in some other manner.

There are quite a few organizations which overlap on the theme of
software freedom, with FSF being one of them at the epicenter.  How many
lobbyists does that coalition have in its pool, in regards to the US
activities?
