If CISPA were to pass, companies could spy on the electronic communications of millions of Internet users and pass sensitive information to the
government with no form of judicial oversight. No guidelines are provided to companies about what data can be collected and transferred, and the bill
offers companies sweeping immunities provided they act in "good faith," giving them exemption from liability for all "decisions made" based on
"cyberthreat information"—a term the bill leaves nebulous.
Is this what you want?
Okay so anon and ats have issues but I think on this topic there is a common enemy.
In practice, this means companies could read your E-mails, monitor what sites you visit, see the files you download—and pass that data to the
government without any liability. In response, the government agency receiving the data could pass it to other internal government agencies and use it
for investigations and prosecutions unrelated to cybersecurity.
It needs to stop. Don't let them take our freedom. Unite 2 Fight.
