Oh look, the House passed CISPA under the cover of the night
Last night after hours the House decided to vote on CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act which has been widely criticized for privacy rights violations because the government and private companies can monitor your private information (emails for example) and pass that information to government agencies completely bypassing Internet privacy laws with little to no probable cause needed.
According to WashPost, CISPA was approved by a 248-168 vote. Now the bill moves to the Senate, where President Obama has threatened CISPA with a veto if it moves further, however you never know if that will happen and this bill moving into the Senate is bad news.
If you would like to help, you can use the Demand Progress letter form to send a note to your senator urging them to reject CISPA. It takes two seconds to fill out.
