Gute Absichten können Menschen finanziell ruinieren

Das Telemediengesetz schützt Freifunker – eigentlich

Dass Freifunker für ihre Nutzer haften, wollte der Gesetzgeber eigentlich vermeiden: Im Frühjahr 2017 hatte die Große Koalition auf Bundesebene eine Änderung des Telemediengesetzes (TMG) beschlossen. Demnach sind Anschlussinhaber für rechtswidriges Verhalten der WLAN-Nutzer nicht verantwortlich, sofern sie nicht involviert sind. Das TMG schließt auch Unterlassungs- oder Schadenersatzansprüche gegen Freifunker aus.

Doch in Hubrigs aktuellem Fall wurde der Freifunker schon in zwei Instanzen dazu verurteilt, dem Gericht die Nutzer seines offenen WLANs zu nennen, um sich selbst zu entlasten.

The investigation has so far also identified at least 180 journalists in 20 countries who were selected for potential targeting with NSO spyware between 2016 to June 2021. Deeply concerning details that have emerged include evidence that family members of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi were targeted with Pegasus software before and after his murder in Istanbul on 2 October 2018 by Saudi operatives,despite repeated denials from NSO Group that its products were used to target Khashoggi or his family members.

The revelations are only a tip of the iceberg.

Digitalcourage und 145 weitere Organisationen fordern ein sofortiges Moratorium für Überwachungstechnologien

Digitalcourage und 145 weitere Organisationen fordern ein sofortiges Moratorium für Überwachungstechnologien. Als Reaktion auf die Veröffentlichungen des „Pegasus-Projekt“ ist jetzt die Politik gefordert, den Schutz von Bürgerinnen und Bürgern in den Vordergrund zu stellen. Daher müssen staatliche Genehmigungen für Verkauf und Export solcher Technologien umgehend ausgesetzt werden, mindestens bis Regulierungen zum Schutz der Menschenrechte umgesetzt wurden.

Die Berichterstattung der letzten Woche zum Pegasus-Projekt hat bestätigt, wie gefährlich die Entwicklung, der Vertrieb und die Nutzung von Überwachungstechnologien für Demokratie und Menschenrechte ist. Der Einsatz von Staatstrojanern, wie der Pegasus-Software, ist eine Gefahr für Demokratie und Menschenrechte. Durch die Installation derartiger Software können Dritte die vollständige Kontrolle über das Gerät übernehmen und so z.B. Nachrichten auf einem Smartphone mitlesen oder Mikrofon und Kamera aus der Ferne einschalten. Daher haben sich über 145 Organisationen und 28 Expert.innen zusammengetan und einen offenen Brief verfasst, welcher nun von Amnesty International veröffentlicht wurde.

Julian Assange’s High Court fight against extradition

Why are we raising funds?

Undertaking the next step in the legal process and defending Julian in the High Court will be expensive, even though Julian’s legal team continues to work for low remuneration and have contributed much of their time pro bono. We cannot do it alone and we need your support.

The significance of Julian’s case

It was the Trump administration who charged Julian under the Espionage Act for exposing war crimes and human rights abuses in 2010 and 2011.

The decision to indict him was a political act motivated by malice. Julian exposed the killing of unarmed civilians and the torture of innocent people. For that the people who are driving this want to bury Julian in the deepest, darkest corner of the US prison system for the rest of his life. Julian faces a potential sentence of 175 years.

Report: Whistleblower Daniel Hale, responsible for revealing massive civilian cost of US Drone Program, receives 45 month sentence „It was necessary to dispel the lie that drone warfare keeps us safe, that our lives are worth more than theirs“ #DanielHale

28.07.2021 - 11:23 [ CourageFound.org ]

Daniel Hale sentenced to 45 months in prison

Before he was sentenced, Hale read a powerful and intensely emotional speech to the court, condemning the horrors of war, particularly the post-9/11 U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and drew attention to Iraqi and Afghan victims of the U.S. drone assassination program. He said he opposes war for the same reasons he opposes the death penalty, saying it’s wrong to kill and especially wrong to kill the defenseless. The U.S. often posthumously labels those it kills as “combatants,” and Hale said that sometimes up to 90% of victims in a given airstrike are unidentifiable.

I Worked at Israeli Phone Hacking Firm Cellebrite. They Lied to Us

I would like to address the issue of supervising phone hacking technology that is being exported by NSO Group and Cellebrite. As a former Cellebrite employee, I can say from personal experience that the company does nothing to prevent the abuse of its products by customers. It knowingly sells products and services to users of dubious repute, belonging to autocratic regimes.

Frederick G. Banting: Nobel Lecture, September 15, 1925

Gentlemen. I very deeply appreciate the honour which you have conferred upon me in awarding the Nobel Prize for 1923 to me and Professor J.J.R. Macleod. I am fully aware of the responsibility which rests upon me to deliver an address in which certain aspects of the work on insulin may be placed before you. This I propose to do today and I regret that an earlier opportunity has not been afforded me of satisfying this obligation.

28.07.2021 - 07:34 [ Laura Marston / Twitter ]

Tomorrow is the 100 year anniversary of the discovery of insulin. In 1921, insulin’s discoverers sold its patent for $1 so insulin would be affordable to all. Today, a single vial of insulin that lasts me about a week is priced at $300+, only in the United States.

(27.07.2021)
