Voters Telecommunications Watch(body)
(VTW) A non-profit organisation based in New York, founded by Shabbir J. Safdar to protect the rights of Internet users. The VTW has actively opposed regulation of encryption and restrictions on Internet free speech. VTW created the animated "Free Speech" fireworks icon that has been displayed on many web pages since June 12, 1996, the day that a three-judge panel in Philadelphia ruled the CDA unconstitutional.
