What issues in digital rights should we be thinking about but may have taken the backburner due to surveillance and net neutrality?
I bet each EFF staffer is going to have a different answer to this one. To me, big ones are mobile privacy (both in terms of mobile device location tracking and in terms of just general privacy concerns with mobile apps) and third-party tracking/privacy in general.
I'm also keeping an eye on the horizon for how digital rights will affect the Internet of Things and vice versa. ("What if I want to hack my Nest thermostat to be more awesome? Does it have DRM?" "Do the cops need a warrant to get data from my Nest thermostat?")
Oh, and just DRM in general is terrible and should be eradicated.
I agree with Jeremy, and you should too, just in general. The guy is almost always right. To put a bit of a finer point on it: sometimes people simplify the work EFF does to "civil liberties but on the Internet," which is a decent summary, but overlooks a lot of issues. We're just as focused on making sure users have autonomy over their technology—what Cory Doctorow refers to as technology in the posture of "Yes, Master," instead of "I Can't Do That, Dave."
Man, I thought this was going to be a shorter answer than it's turning out to be. The point is: there's a whole sphere of issues around making sure your tech does what you want it to, which only gets more and more important as it touches an increasing portion of our lives.
