52 <h2>Are you giving your loved ones holiday gifts they can use freely, or
53 gifts which put someone else in control?</h2>

56 Electronics are popular gifts for the holidays, but people often overlook
57 the restrictions that manufacturers slip under the wrapping paper.
58 Companies like Microsoft and Apple can and will use Digital
59 Restrictions Management (DRM) to prevent your loved ones from
60 sharing apps on the laptop you got them or remixing the songs on
61 their expensive new iPad. If the recipient of your gift is as
62 unlucky as one woman last year,
63 <a href="http://www.defectivebydesign.org/node/2250">
64 Amazon might even block all the books on their Kindle and refuse to explain why</a>.
65 Companies want us to accept this kind of intrusive control,
66 but when you think about, it's unethical (and annoying!).

72 The good news is, for every device that uses DRM or has a remote
73 "kill switch" like the Kindle, ethical companies have made a better
74 one that doesn't, one that your loved ones will be free to enjoy however
75 they wish. Here's a list of these smarter gifts, compared with their
76 more well-known, but more restrictive alternatives. While you're
77 reading, please remember that donating to a charity in your friend
78 or family member's name is at least as meaningful as buying them
79 an electronic device. Some of our favorite charities are the
80 <a href="http://www.eff.org/">Electronic Frontier Foundation</a>,
81 <a href="http://www.creativecommons.org/">Creative Commons</a>,
82 <a href="http://wikimedia.org/">Wikimedia Foundation</a>,

84 <a href="http://www.softwarefreedom.org/">Software Freedom Law Center</a>,
85 <a href="http://www.gnome.org/">GNOME Foundation</a>
86 and Free Software Foundation.

105 To make a really big splash, get some friends together, print the PDF
106 version of the Giving Guide and hand it out near a local store that
107 sells DRM-encumbered products. Be sure to take photos! Send us photos
108 and any questions at <a href="mailto:campaigns@fsf.org">campaigns@fsf.org</a>.
