Some of you are aware that Gandi supports many non-profit organizations and philanthropic associations with free or discounted hosting and/or domains. Often we choose who to support based on the mission of the organization, and whether that mission aligns with the needs and interests of our community: the community of Internet innovators, of which we are proud to be members.
Every so often the interests of our community need more than just support. They need to be defended from attack by narrower interests, and so today Gandi is participating in a campaign with the EFF, CDT and others to help create a meaningful improvement in a dangerously broad law in the USA: The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA).
Some of you may have heard about the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA. Gandi took a position against this legislation for
good reasons. The US Congress is once again considering acts that abrogate existing privacy law on the Internet, this time in the name of stopping cyber attacks. One particularly heinous act is called CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.
...and this is good. Muhammad Yunus, creator of Microcredit, is finally in the spotlight! and rightfully so - to be awarded the most prestigious of awards: the Nobel Peace Prize.
