The Electronic Frontier Foundation has launched the Coders’ Rights Project, devoted to the legal rights and responsibilities of software programmers and developers who are involved in exploring technology through techniques such as reverse engineering and vulnerability testing and reporting. The project’s Web pages include FAQs on reverse engineering and vulnerability reporting along with information and court documents on EFF’s coders’ rights cases, such as the recent Boston case, MBTA v. Anderson.
