Today the House passed CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) with 92 Democrats voting for it, which is 42 more than last year. http://gizmodo.com/5905360/what-is-cispa The government want to be able to get info about your online activities and read your email: CISPA would permit any private company (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Google, you name it) to give away any and all data it's collected on you when asked by a government agency. Literally any government agency. This data would then head to the Department of Homeland Security. Facebook, Google, and Microsoft all support CISPA. Why? Because they don't want to get hacked, and they think this will keep them safe(r). Are they right in this? Maybe, but they're also ignoring the companies can share anything they want whenever they want however they want with the government aspect of the bill. [h=2]...and one very, very powerful critic. The President.[/h] The White House is having none of this CISPA nonsense: Cybersecurity and privacy are not mutually exclusive. Moreover, information sharing, while an essential component of comprehensive legislation, is not alone enough to protect the Nation's core critical infrastructure from cyber threats. Accordingly, the Administration strongly opposes H.R. 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, in its current form. President Obama says he'll veto the bill if it lands on his desk. But! Lets try to make sure it doesn't get that far: the EFF has an easy tool to find your representative and tell him and/or her that you don't want to be sold out by Facebook and spied on by the government. It only takes a few minutesâ€”and the House votes tomorrow. If you still don't think CISPA is bad, read this. Update: The vote was quietly moved up to tonight, and passed in the House 248 to 168, mostly along party lines. The bill is still stalled in the Senate, and President Obama's most recent statements still indicate he would use veto power.
