55 <h2>Are you giving your loved ones holiday gifts they can use freely, or gifts which put someone else in control?</h2>
6ad30aa5
ZR
56 <p>Electronics are popular gifts for the holidays, but people often overlook the restrictions that manufacturers slip under the wrapping paper. From remote deletion of files to harsh rules about copying and sharing, some gifts take more
57 than they give. The good news is that there are ethical companies making better devices that your loved ones can enjoy with freedom and privacy. This is the Free Software Foundation (FSF) guide to smarter gifts, compared with their restrictive
58 counterparts.

6ad30aa5 61 Guide Giveaway</a> to share it with your community. And remember: donating to a charity in your friend or family member's name (see our recommendations below) is at least as meaningful as buying them an electronic device.</p>
