CISPA Internet Control Bill Coming Back

"Cyber intelligence sharing and protection"


We thought we killed all those awful, horrible destroy the Internet-type bills in SOPA, PIPA and CISPA. We might've been wrong. Like a zombie looking for human blood or a sore loser demanding a rematch, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger and Rep. Mike Rogers plan to re-introduce CISPA to the House later this year.

The problem with CISPA, or the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, that made it so damn scary was that it would've allowed any company to give away all the data its collected on you if asked by the government. Sure that sounds okay but CISPA had very vague terms and very little oversight, it could have resulted in a free for all on privacy.
