CISPA Amended, Passed, in Last-Minute Vote

Posted by | April 27, 2012

CISPA stands for the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, but what it really means is another backdoor attempt to sell out the internet. Supporters of the bill pushed up the vote on it, taking critics by surprise. They also amended the bill to make what few protections it offered into paper-thin shams. SiliconAngle has the story.

    So far, CISPA only passed the house, which is a seething pit of Republican venom. How it’ll do in the Senate is anyone’s guess. I’m betting on no. Still, bills like this must be fought, and the people who propose them must be voted out of office. The internet is too important to give away.
