As congressmen in Washington consider how to handle the ongoing issue of cyberattacks, some legislators have lent their support to a new act that, if passed, would let the government pry into the personal correspondence of anyone of their choosing. This is SOPA being passed in smaller chunks...

H.R. 3523, a piece of legislation dubbed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (or CISPA for short) has vague definitions that could allow Congress to circumvent existing exemptions to online privacy laws and essentially monitor, censor and stop any online communication that it considers disruptive to the government or private parties.

Here's the link to the current ATS discussion thread .....

They are voting on this in 2 weeks time....

Indeed... This certainly does justify the same level of anger. NSA is hard at work building Skynet in Utah so they can run the whole infrastructure their long term thinking here will require too. Acres of servers they already have are no match for this task.

I hope MSM and others start grumbling hard on this. Anything that leads to that same destination of suppression on an international form of communication like this can only hurt EVERYONE in the long term. What one nation finds offensive, another worships while yet another puts on a bun and calls a Big Mac, for instance.

This whole direction of Nanny-Net is just bad and there IS no upside to get behind. Law Enforcement on the net? Yes.... International Laws exist and more can be added with the consent of the nations. This is more about Policy Enforcement and that has no place in my view.

Don't bother me. American Idol is on. (Or is it Dancing with the Stars?) Guess I will just have to check the TV Guide. Too busy right now.

I'm a co-admin of a facebook group trying to bring awareness...we've not got as much momentum as SOPA however.

People must just be satisfied with their one-shot win, and forgot about the FotM thing to protest/hate/whatever.

Help us aggregate some knowledge, if you wish.

I know, I have guilt, here is the thing. It seems like a hydra, each time you cut off a head, another one grows in it's place. I am fighting not to have a sense of doom and inevitability.

They saw in Egypt, Iran, Syria, to name a few, just how powerful the internet and social networks can be. They are afraid and they will not stop until they think they have control.

Canada attached SOPA/PIPA like rules to a Child Pornography Bill called Bill C-30. Making it a bit more difficult to object to without people giving you flack and saying you're for child pornographers.

Both Countries are screwed.

Yeah, they're determined--and I mean determined--to bring the Internet securely under their Fascist umbrella and make it safe--and appropriate--for 5-year-olds. The rest of us might as well decide right now what we're going to use in its place. And we might as well get used to the idea that whatever we use will be thoroughly mined by the NSA. Even if we could effectively fight these regressive laws, that's the thing we have to keep in mind: That it's going to be collected, sifted, collated, and catalogued by the NSA no matter what kind of electronic communication it is.

The laws no longer matter. It's too late. You're being profiled as we speak.

For my part, I've decided to be philosophical about it. Consequently, I only break OFFline laws now

Yes, I know., it's a shame. I usually check this out especiallyif I see a recent post going on this forum. Apathy has made it to ATS. What happened here?

It seems people just do not believe such things will happen. I got laughed at more than a few times trying to tell people about the light bulb ban. Those same people are now like "When did this happen?" or "I never heard anything about this". It seems that most people just do not want to even thing such a thing could happen so they just do not listen.

I've had that same experience. It's almost like they wake up in a new world every day. "That's funny. This [fill-in-the-blank ugly globalist plot] wasn't happening yesterday. Oh, well...."

If we get enough flags to make it to front page, the apathy will likely vanish.
No one likes their internet being taken away.

Thank you for posting the link to the petition, I went and signed it. It was so rewarding to me to sign the last one when it made a difference. I am hoping it will change things this time, but as I posted earlier, they will not stop.
