PGP Pretty Good Privacy 

The following public article is not related to Modula-2 or Oberon-2, but it is very important 
because it concerns our privacy. 

I'd like to encourage all readers of The ModulaTor to help Phil. 

PGP is available for DOS, Windows, VAX/VMS, and many other platforms. If you want to 
know where to get a copy of PGP or if you have further questions, please contact me. 

If you already have PGP, send me your public key. Here is mine: 

[ed. note: in the meantime, 10 years after, it's OpenPGP for Thunderbird or GnuPG]

Subject: PGP defense fund 

As you may already know, on September 14 LEMCOM Systems (ViaCrypt) in Phoenix, 
Arizona was served with a subpoena issued by the US District Court of Northern 
California to testify before a grand jury and produce documents related to "ViaCrypt, 
PGP, Philip Zimmermann, and anyone or any entity acting on behalf of Philip 
Zimmermann for the time period June 1, 1991 to the present." 

Phil Zimmermann has been explicitly told that he is the primary target of the investigation 
being mounted from the San Jose office of U.S. Customs. It is not known if there are 
other targets. Whether or not an indictment is returned in this case, the legal bills will be 
astronomical. 

If this case comes to trial, it will be one of the most important cases in recent times 
dealing with cryptography, effective communications privacy, and the free flow of 
information and ideas in cyberspace in the post-Cold War political order. The stakes are 
high, both for those of us who support the idea of effective personal communications 
privacy and for Phil, who risks jail for his selfless and successful effort to bring to birth 
"cryptography for the masses," a.k.a. PGP. 

Export controls are being used as a means to curtail domestic access to effective 
cryptographic tools: Customs is taking the position that posting cryptographic code to the 
Internet is equivalent to exporting it. Phil has assumed the burden and risk of being the 
first to develop truly effective tools with which we all might secure our communications 
against prying eyes, in a political environment increasingly hostile to such an idea -- an 
environment in which Clipper chips and Digital Telephony bills are our own government's 
answer to our concerns. Now is the time for us all to step forward and help shoulder that 
burden with him. 

Phil is assembling a legal defense team to prepare for the possibility of a trial, and he 
needs your help. This will be an expensive affair, and the meter is already ticking. I call 
on all of us, both here in the U.S. and abroad, to help defend Phil and perhaps establish 
a groundbreaking legal precedent. A legal trust fund has been established with Phil's 
attorney in Boulder. Donations will be accepted in any reliable form, check, money order, 
or wire transfer, and in any currency. Here are the details: 

To send a check or money order by mail, make it payable, NOT to Phil Zimmermann, but 
to Phil's attorney, Philip Dubois. Mail the check or money order to the following address: 

[ed. note: in the meantime obsolete; address deleted]

Any funds remaining after the end of legal action will be returned to named donors in 
proportion to the size of their donations. 

You may give anonymously or not, but PLEASE - give generously. If you admire PGP, 
what it was intended to do and the ideals which animated its creation, express your 
support with a contribution to this fund.
