CISPA is deeply flawed. Under a broad cybersecurity umbrella, it permits companies to share user communications directly with the super secret NSA and permits the NSA to use that information for non-cybersecurity reasons. This risks turning the cybersecurity program into a back door intelligence surveillance program run by a military entity with little transparency or public accountability.

The specific reasons you ought to be concerned and join this fight are as follows:

➣ Companies have new rights to monitor user actions and share data—including potentially sensitive user data—with the government without a warrant.

➣ CISPA overrides existing privacy law, and grants broad immunities to participating companies.

➣ CISPA also raises major transparency and accountability issues such as exempting information provided to the government from the Freedom of Information Act.

➣ Users probably won't know if their private data is compromised under CISPA, and will have little recourse.

For me the biggest threat to Internet freedom are my cats who insist on nomming my power and HDMI cords and Ethernet cables. I'm covering everything with flex tubing and hoping for the best.
