WTF is CISPA (infographic)

by Ron on May 1, 2012

You’ve probably heard the CISPA acronym by now, but you may not be familiar with what it is and why industry insiders are not as hotly against it as they were SOPA/PIPA. Mostly because SOPA/PIPA was against everybody’s rights, but this bill sweetens the pot you see for industry by giving them permission to collect data about you (and everyone wants your data, especially if it’s government sanctioned to take it) — all under the auspices of “national security.” What could be better than that?

Have a look and learn what this is about because it appears to be just as insidious as SOPA/PIPA, but Facebook and Google and aren’t speaking out against it this time. That means you and I have to do the heavy lifting if we want it to fail. 

It is worth noting that the White House has said, President Obama will veto this legislation as written if it makes it to his desk.
