5 Reasons the CISPA Cybersecurity Bill Should Be Tossed

So long SOPA and PIPA, hello Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), a bill proposed last November to give the government new powers to secure networks and thwart copyright violators. It’s finally up for a vote later this month, sparking protests all this week in what’s looking like another informational ramp-up to leverage the court of public opinion against the bill’s passage. Debate on SOPA, a bill that sought to give the government broad powers in combatting online piracy, was postponed indefinitely after users and companies including Google, Wikipedia and Reddit gathered signatures for anti-SOPA petitions or staged actual service blackouts in mid-January.
