The Electronic Frontier Foundation – What It Is & Why …
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) was founded in July 1990. It is a membership organization devoted to civil liberties in "cyberspace". It provides legal counsel, and in many cases funds or actual legal representation, for cases in which civil liberties are threatened or interfered with in some information-driven context (such as Internet censorship, access to strong cryptography for personal use, and so forth).
As is the case with many of the famous women inventors, Lamarr received very little recognition of her innovative talent at the time, but recently she has been showered with praise for her groundbreaking invention. In 1997, she and George Anthiel were honored with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Pioneer Award. And later in the same year, Lamarr became the first female recipient of the BULBIE™ Gnass Spirit of Achievement Award, a prestigious lifetime accomplishment prize for inventors that is dubbed "The Oscar™ of Inventing."
