Under the guise of security concerns and an attempt at strengthening the digital piracy laws, CISPA, Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, is a bill proposed by the United States Government and hotly contested by its citizens. The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures. Internet social sites will be required to turn over information to the Government without a warrant.
PIPA, SOPA, and CISPA are all attempts by record companies, video game publishers, and moviemakers to shut down forms of expression they don't understand, and in order to satisfy these corporations the government is bending over backwards, creating dangerous loopholes that can be exploited by future governments and corporations. Companies that adapt to the Internet of today are making millions of dollars, without the "protections" of CISPA.
CISPA would destroy jobs, imprison innocent worldwide, not just the U.S. This blatant powergrab is deplorable and must be stopped. I simply don't trust any government with private information simply because they want to stop terrorism before it even happens. Or at least, that's what's being said. In truth, this is meant to monitor and spy on people while companies like Facebook and Google acquire a hell of lot of money selling information about people to the government. Simply disgraceful. It also didn't help that they used fear mongering and the events in Boston to push this through either.
CISPA is the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, and it is evil. Yes, we want to be secure and safe, but that will cost our freedom. The government wants to look at your browsing history, and that is not okay. America is supposed to be a free country and we deserve internet freedom.
