One of the biggest challenges for transparency advocates is that many of the federal government's surveillance programs are so secret that government officials will not even acknowledge their existence.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has been challenging surveillance secrecy for years. In June, EFF staff attorney Mark Rumold spoke with Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller about the organization's most recent victory and what's next in the fight to unmask federal snooping...

In April 2013, police officers and a social worker from Sacramento County's Child Protective Services entered the home of Anna and Alex Nikolayev and took their baby, Sammy, away from them. They had no warrant.

The secrecy surrounding CPS stems from the nature of California's juvenile dependency courts which only allow limited press access and seal all court records. While media and other interested parties can petition the court to open the records, this can be a lengthy process and by no means guarantees results. ReasonTV petitioned the court to open the records in the Nikolayev's case and, almost two months later, we have still not received a ruling from the judge.

Reason TV sat down with Blake Boles to discuss his controversial book, Better Than College, which makes the case for education through entrepreneurship.

"If you're undecided, if you just want to go for the social experience, if you just want to move away from home, if you want to generally explore the liberal arts, I think that all those things can be done much more cheaply, effectively, and, again, building more of an entrepreneurial spirit by taking a path that is not traditional college." -- Blake Boles

Copyright exists to "promote the useful arts" according to the Constitution. But is it still doing that? And should the government protect so-called “intellectual property” in the same way it protects other forms of property?

"This disconnect between the public's view of copyright and fair use and what should and should not be prosecuted, versus the 'copyright maximist' view of the law, is our generation's Prohibition," says Ben Huh, CEO and founder of Cheezburger and a loud voice in the recent backlash to SOPA and PIPA, two congressional bills aimed at curbing internet piracy.

This article is the first in a series that will walk through iOS programming using the example of designing an iPhone game.

I love games and I'm a huge math nerd, so I made a new iPhone game based on a famous math problem called The Seven Bridges of Königsberg. I'm selling it in the App Store, but I also want to share it with everyone, so I made it open source.

The $36 million No on 37 campaign, bankrolled by $20 million from the world's six largest pesticide companies, has been caught in yet another lie, this time possibly criminal.

These companies and their allies in the junk food industry know that their profit margins may suffer if consumers have a choice whether to purchase genetically engineered foods or not. And that's why opponents are spending nearly a million dollars per day trying to make Prop 37 complicated. But really it's simple - we have the right to know what's in our food. To date, the No on 37 campaign has been able to repeat one lie after another with near impunity. But has this pattern of deceit finally caught up to it?

In what he admitted was a "novel holding" in an apparent case of first impression that required him to "apply an ancient legal doctrine to modern technology," a Franklin County trial judge has allowed text messages between a husband and wife.

In an opinion issued Monday, Franklin County Common Pleas Court Judge Richard J. Walsh declined to preclude from evidence text messages sent between a husband and wife that detailed the condition and injuries of the husband's allegedly abused 4-year-old biological child. Citing case law dating back to the 1824 English law case Doker v. Hasler, Walsh said the original purpose of the spousal communications privilege was to preserve marital harmony by preserving marital confidences.

Families are deeply responsible for reporting domestic child abuse even if they risk a child being removed from a home, experts said.

"There's a belief that if we involve child welfare, they're going to take the children away," said Roy Van Tassell, a clinical supervisor for the organization, which specializes in counseling families to prevent child abuse and neglect. "Families are often surprised to find that they're just given treatment and training."

Nearly every week, I hear someone shrug off privacy issues with a claim that they're not worried because they have "nothing to hide" from the government. Let's put a cork in it, once and for all.

"Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, 'I don't really worry about invasions of privacy because I don't have anything to hide,' I always say the same thing to them. I get out a pen. I write down my email address. I say, 'Here's my email address. What I want you to do when you get home is email me the passwords to all of your email accounts, not just the nice, respectable work one in your name, but all of them, because I want to be able to just troll through what it is you're doing online, read what I want to read and publish whatever I find interesting. After all, if you're not a bad person, if you're doing nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide.'
