EFA is the only independent national organisation with a longstanding tradition of promoting online civil liberties. EFA was established in January 1994 and incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act (SA) in May 1994. EFA is independent of government and commerce and is solely funded by membership subscriptions and donations from individuals and organisations with an altruistic interest in promoting online civil liberties.
Although EFA has been leading the Open Internet campaign against the Government's proposal to censor the Internet, that is just one aspect of our activities and interests. In addition to Internet censorship, EFA campaigns on a wide range of issues relating to Internet regulation, including copyright, defamation, R18+ for computer games, telecommunications, ISP liability, privacy, domain names, trade marks, and the digital economy.
