EFF continues fight for rights and freedoms

... it's no longer practical to say they're protecting "digital rights." Rebecca Jeschke, Media Relations Coordinator for the EFF, says, "Instead, in our increasingly networked world, they are simply 'rights.' ..."

I appreciate that "digital rights" may be redundant in an age where everything is digital, but I notice the EFF web page still claims its mission is based on "rights in the digital world," which is what I thought "digital rights" was an abbreviation for.

If EFF isn't about rights in the digital world, I don't know what it's about, because it clearly doesn't defend simply "rights" -- it necessarily opposes as many rights as it supports.
