EFF's Guide to Digital Rights During the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly every area of our daily life, requiring hundreds of millions of people to take steps that would be unthinkable in normal times. It has also had a profound impact on how we use technology, and what we expect from it. That’s where EFF’s experts come in. Donate and download EFF’s Guide to Digital Rights During the Pandemic, a free, Creative Commons-licensed collection of articles by EFF on the intersections between COVID-19 and technology.

Because we at EFF have a committed membership as our primary support–over half of our annual budget comes from individuals—we have been able to pivot our attention to these issues even as we continue our ongoing fights. This book was written by our teams of lawyers, technologists, activists, and experts in the first few weeks of the United States’ COVID-19 shut-down, but its conclusions have been built on years of preparative work. If you find this guide useful, please consider joining the force for good that makes it possible: our membership. Your donation will go directly to supporting EFF’s 30-year  mission—to ensure that technology supports freedom, justice, and innovation for all the people of the world.

After donating, you will be taken to a page where you can download EFF's Guide to Digital Rights During the Pandemic in ePub and MOBI formats. If you'd like to obtain the files without making a contribution to EFF, click here for direct download links.
