Even worse than SOPA: New CISPA cybersecurity bill will censor the Web


rt.com

CISPA allows Internet Service Providers to “funnel private communications and related information back to the government without adequate privacy protections and controls.
The bill does not specify which agencies ISPs could disclose customer data to, but the structure and incentives in the bill raise a very real possibility that the National Security Agency or the DOD’s Cybercommand would be the primary recipient,” reads the warning.

Now with CISPA replacing the SOPA bill to control the internet. This bill would give companies the power to collect information on their subscribers and hand it over to the government and all they have to do is request it.

I really can't see them giving up with this with so many different attempts to get this bill passed, you have to ask why is it so important to pass a bill that the citizens are so against?

Would it GIVE companies the power to collect information, or COMPEL them to?

I'm interested in that aspect.

Well the problem with CISPA is that the bill is so broad that the government could ask for anything and the companies would have to hand the information over. Also i really can't imagine the employers asking too many questions if they come requesting the information

It's yet another way for your goverment (and eventually ours - UK is the puppet of the US!) to control its people. if you speak out publically the government will hear - now they can legally hear what you say in private to friends and co-workers.

I'm pretty sure there will be a Anon vid about it soon.


However, the bill goes much further, permitting ISPs to funnel private communications and related information back to the government without adequate privacy protections and controls. The bill does not specify which agencies ISPs could disclose customer data to, but the structure and incentives in the bill raise a very real possibility that the National Security Agency or the DOD’s Cybercommand would be the primary recipient.

No you can't, because all of them play for the same team. It's happening one way or the other, there are no honest politicians out there.

Save one or two....

Is this the bill cleverly described as an "anti pedo bill" where they are trying to spy on you for certain things... And it has the same writing as SOPA/PIPA? but with a title you can't fight without dying a little inside?

Exactly, being a UK citizen myself i am taking a great interest in what is happening in the US at the moment. In particular in the UK with the proposed introduction to monitor all emails and web usage, the epetition has only 7,000 signatures currently.

What is more worrying for me is that all my friends who are either in university or have jobs now is that they are more interested in what is happening on facebook and the latest celeb gossip they don't see that this bill will affect them and have no interested in it at all.

Why is it that a celeb post on facebook will get 20+ likes, whereas a post relating to the proposed internet controls gets nothing. Something is seriously messed up with the priorities in my generation

Yet, this travesty of a democrat "president" will sign it if he can get it. Stop playing the "party" game. All of the politicians are against us with the possible exception of Ron Paul.

I have been thinking for a long time that the people who really pose a danger to the government will use very low-tech methods of communication in order to accomplish their goals. The world wide web is so booby-trapped and spied on that anybody with a mind to be a threat would not use it. That goes for cell phones, too.

I imagine this is just a way to keep free speech down among the general population. The real masterminds, they will never stop.

Dick Clarke seems to want internet controls in the name of fighting cybertheft from China. He wants Obama to do it without Congress!

^ good video explaining it.
It's would be just the extension of ACTA needed to complete it's intention. If shot down we still have to worry about ACTA being signed in the Euro Parliament these extensions will not even be needed.

Bumping this up we need more attention paid to this!
