Welcome to Techrights

Founded in 2006, this Web site represents more than just a message; it serves a community and a growing movement. Having attracted over a billion hits, Techrights is now an internationally-recognised platform for advocacy of digital rights and personal privileges. Activism here is both positive and negative, as Techrights often criticises companies and organisations that harm society. The site was best known for Boycott Novell until 2010. The goal here is to maximise freedom, reduce surveillance, and generally promote the sharing of knowledge, which in turn requires transparent systems, lenient licensing terms, no censorship, and active collaboration among parties.

Y2K (film)

Research conducted by Techrights has led to it being approached by filmmakers, not just the broadcast/media. One such example is the documentary film Y2K. We spent a day being filmed for it. This film was aired on Swiss television (TSR) and also broadcasted on TV5 in France in April 2010 (maybe in the US too at a later stage).
