It was actually only the House of Representatives that passed CISPA. Sorry about the information I gave. But that’s still really bad. CISP is not dead yet. But anyway, there’s news about CISPA. The Obama administration has allowed companies (including AT&T) to wiretap people on the internet. Under the laws we have, this would usually be illegal, but the government decided whether the government got punished, and of course, since they were the ones who did the wiretapping (along with the companies), they decided that they were all OK. So the government basically doesn’t have to follow their own rules. The government had to issue 2,511 letters to allow this to happen, since there are 3 branches of government that all have some say in what the other branches of government can and can not do. You can read about that here:
If CISPA gets passed, they wouldn’t even have to issue letters. They could just spy on people while they’re on the internet without having to issue letters or anything like that. This is why we have to stop CISPA. Max-igami is still under an emergency, so the only activity I’ll allow is comments on this post, my “CISPA Blackout” post, and my original “Emergency” post.
May the Force be with you, and good luck protesting CISPA.
