Are you giving your loved ones tech gifts they can use freely?

+

Or gifts which put someone else in control?

+

+ Electronics are popular gifts, 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 than they give. +

+

More ethical options

+

+ 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's guide to smarter gift giving, compared with their restrictive counterparts. +
