The Electronic Frontier Foundation is a liberal organization allied with the ACLU that claims it supports free speech rights on the internet.[1] The organization was founded by John Gilmore, Mitch Kapor, and John Perry Barlow. Michael Godwin worked for the organization before his current job as the counsel for Wikipedia.

The EFF has fought against the interests of the national security of the United States. In American Civil Liberties Union v. Ashcroft the EFF filed an amicus brief against the FBI examining the records of ISP customers. The EFF was also involved in fighting against anti-pornography provisions in the Communications Decency Act. The EFF is now involved in preventing congress from broadening the President's ability to eavesdrop on terrorists and in suing companies such as AT&T that have cooperated with anti-terror investigations.[2]
