United States Civil Liberties Groups, Internet Companies, and Citizens Demand an End to NSA Spying. Join them.
The recent revelations about the National Security Agency’s surveillance apparatus, including using data from non-governmental business entities, if true, expose stunning abuses and violations of our basic Constitutional rights. Demand that the U.S. Congress reveal the full extent of the NSA’s data-collection (some say spying) programs, and that Congress eliminate Constitutional violations. Petition your government. (The right to petition government for redress of grievances is the right to make a complaint to, or seek the assistance of, one’s government, without fear of punishment or reprisals.)

Vuze supports the uses of tools to protect and safeguard those rights and uses, and against evil, from printed pamphlets to encryption to avoiding storing private data and communications on central servers. To be very clear, and we are very serious and don’t say this with a wink or a knowing nod, we are publicly coming out in support of these rights and tools for legitimate uses now because of these recent shocking (maybe not so shocking) revelations, and we strongly condemn the use of tools to attempt to protect against the detection of illegal activity, including infringing upon the rights of others, including copyright under the laws of your territory as they currently exist – regardless of whether those laws should be reformed. That said, learn some more about some of these tools as relates to P2P here: http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Proxies_And_VPNs ; http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Anonymous_file_sharing_with_Tor_and_I2P.
