This is an update on my earlier item about the EFF’s ACLU-like position in the Apple / PowerPage lawsuit. Apparently everyone (all five of ’em) who was motivated to comment on the EFF’s position in this matter (which I will paraphrase as “other peoples’ information wants to be free once someone violates their duty of confidentiality and blabs it”) agrees with Likelihood of Confusion. As we all know, rectitude is solely a function of who wins the vote, so you have to like this trend.
How would EFF climb down from this one? And assuming they don’t, how would it ever enforce any non-disclosure agreements it may have with its own employees, contractors and others?
