45 <h2>Are you giving your loved ones holiday gifts they can use freely, or
46 gifts which put someone else in control?</h2>
47
48 <p>
49 Electronics are popular gifts for the holidays, but people often overlook
50 the restrictions that manufacturers slip under the wrapping paper.
51 Companies like Microsoft and Apple can and will use Digital
52 Restrictions Management (DRM) to prevent your loved ones from
53 sharing apps on the laptop you got them or remixing the songs on
54 their expensive new iPad. If the recipient of your gift is as
55 unlucky as one woman last year,
56 <a href="http://www.defectivebydesign.org/node/2250">
57 Amazon might even block all the books on their Kindle and refuse to explain why</a>.
58 Companies want us to accept this kind of intrusive control,
59 but when you think about, it's unethical (and annoying!).
60 </p>
61
62 <h2>Give freely</h2>
63
64 <p>
65 The good news is, for every device that uses DRM or has a remote
66 "kill switch" like the Kindle, ethical companies have made a better
67 one that doesn't, one that your loved ones will be free to enjoy however
68 they wish. Here's a list of these smarter gifts, compared with their
69 more well-known, but more restrictive alternatives. While you're
70 reading, please remember that donating to a charity in your friend
71 or family member's name is at least as meaningful as buying them
72 an electronic device. Some of our favorite charities are the
73 <a href="http://www.eff.org/">Electronic Frontier Foundation</a>,

79 and Free Software Foundation.

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