CICPA is back

Here is a petition from Electronic Frontier Foundation.  The forces of evil will not stop in their effort to censor the internet and control the flow of information and bend it to their needs.  We must also be vigilant in our efforts to keep the internet free and open.  Please sign the petition below.

Send a message to your representatives asking them to oppose this dangerous bill.
Dangerous Cybersecurity Legislation Threatens Online Privacy

Not in the United States? Take action here instead.

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is back.

Last year, Representatives Rogers and Ruppersberger introduced CISPA, which would create a gaping new exemption to existing privacy law. CISPA would grant companies more power to obtain “threat” information (such as from private communications of users) and to disclose that data to the government without a warrant — including sending data to the National Security Agency.

CISPA was recently reintroduced in the House of Representatives. EFF is joining groups like ACLU and Fight for the Future in combating this legislation.

Last year, tens of thousands of concerned individuals used the EFF action center to speak out against overbroad and ineffective cybersecurity proposals. Together, we substantially changed the debate around cybersecurity in the U.S., moving forward a range of privacy-protective amendments and ultimately helping to defeat the Senate bill.

Now we need your help again. Can you send a message to your Representatives asking them to oppose this bill?
