Quote:The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is a United States proposed law introduced on November 30, 2011 by U.S. Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI) and 111 co-sponsors. It was passed in the House of Representatives on April 26, 2012.
The bill would allow the voluntary sharing of attack and threat information between the U.S. government and security cleared technology and manufacturing companies in an attempt to ensure the security of networks against patterns of attack.

Quote:We're watching these developments in the UK, Bytemite, and believe me, we're just as nervous. Given how apparently easy it is for the US government to extradite UK citizens, we've every right to be nervous.
Quote:And if one more person trots out that tired old saw 'nothing to hide, nothing to fear', I will bop them smartly on the head. There is everything to fear from any government that doesn't understand the difference between a desire for privacy and having something to hide.
