Jason from the EFF Sets the Record Straight

Jason Schultz of the EFF, whose words were the subject of scrutiny here a few days ago, has stopped by our humble abode to offer an explanation:

Hi. This is Jason Schultz from the EFF, who was MISquoted in the article. I saw your post here and wanted to make sure I clarified what happened. When I talked to the reporter, I had no idea that the article was going to be about the RIAA holding quasi-legal, racist raids. I thought it was merely another article about the RIAA sending out its investigators to collect info on CD bootleggers and then turn it over to the real police to do an investigation. I was shocked, just like many of you, when I saw the article and learned the real story. Make no mistake, the EFF is entirely committed to preserving all our civil liberties and would never endorse the kind of vigilante tactics the RIAA is using in its street raids.

If you're interested in reading more of my take on this mishap, I have posted a longer reaction on my blog here if you want to read it. Please feel free to share this response and my blogged response with any others who might be concerned.


Okay, that makes a little more sense. *whew*
