CISPA Sounds A Lot Like SOPA

Dear politicians, thank you for continually reminding us who desperately needs to be removed from office. Thanks to all the [H] readers of legal voting age that sent this one in! wink

CISPA's primary function is to remove legal barriers that might keep Internet companies from giving all your communication and information to the government. It allows "cyber entities" (such as Internet service providers, social networks like Facebook and cell phone companies like AT&T) to circumvent Internet privacy laws when they're pressured by Homeland Security to hand over or shut down -- well, almost anything of yours online that the government wants, no warrant needed.
