Right after Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) ended boycotted by the entire online community, the House of Representatives was quick to replace the proposed legislation with the new one, called Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).
CISPA, also known as H.R. 3532, is basically just another name for its already dead twin – SOPA, if not even worse. CISPA suggests that the act of copyright violation should be regarded as a security threat. The provision in question has already gained more than 100 supporters. In the event that this bill passes, Internet service providers along with other companies will be demanded to share user details with government agencies.
The EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) explains that the suggested law would let corporations spy on Internet users and share their private details with the federal government and other entities with near-total immunity from both civil and criminal liability. In other words, CISPA effectively creates a so-called “cybersecurity” exemption to any existing legislation.
Meanwhile, the language used in Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act is similar to that in SOPA and is as well confusing. For instance, such online giants as Facebook, Google, Twitter, and others could be demanded to intercept their users’ e-mails, messages and even browsing habits to later share this data with each other. They could also be forced to remove or block access to any infringing content that’s found. In other words, the authorities of the United States will watch over every user’s move online, despite the fact that everyone has a right for privacy.
That’s another cause for another fight, and the industry experts are calmly waiting for it to start.

|How can this crap gain 100 supporters, I'll guess the supporters work for the MPAA and RIAA and VPN and e mail encrption software inventors. So how do we block our e mails now are VPNs enough?|
|i highly dought that this will pass, its against human rights all around the worlds and i dont think isps will jump because the government says too.|
We should create a network for all the recording industries that they can use away from all other uses because seriously i am sick of hearing this bullshit. They dont get the hint and they will keep trying. someone needs to dsrill it into their head that its the internet get over it.
If the encryption was good enough on media no one would be able to rip the content and if people where screened at cinemas for cameras we wouldnt have this issue. Why dont they bloody well chase the root cause instead of trying to play god.

|@gronkstar: if people where screened at cinemas for cameras we would have more issues. but cams are only done in countries like Ger, Ru and china were its legal to do this. "Why dont they bloody well chase the root cause instead of trying to play god" do you know what the root of the problem is? I do...its GREED! plan and simple.|
and that's just the issue @ hand......they are putting the blame on the US and they have already said that china is were most of the piracy comes from but o no its the US we got to put a stop to this!.....plain STUPIDITY!
as I stated in another post, file sharing, downloading. are not criminal acts. as the law states that its only breaking the law if you are using the stuff you got in a manner that its not intended. music, movies and games are for privet home exhibition only as stated in the video warnings and some times on the box. so as long as we don't download via ANY free WiFi location or publicly displaying the game, movie or playing the music you are NOT! breaking any law. in fact the stores that PUBLICLY display home videos on there demo screens are IN FACT breaking it! as far as radio stations are concerned....they pay for broadcast rights!
|@Clamo : Nicely Said. I dont know if it is still like it used to, but video rental store's used to have licensed private copy's of movies for the public viewing... they had to pay Outrageous prices for it too...|
But still, we need to REFORM copyright law period... this should be ALL covered under the "Fair Use" clause... not some loophole for the MPAA/RIAA to try and weed more money out of the public...
I mean what they are doing is nothing Short of Extortion.

|@Xen08Anon: I looked @ that pdf and the only thing I gathered from it was they think that file sharing is an act of terrorism. they have already tried to tell the US government this crap say about 3 years ago and they didn't by in to in then so it sound if tho they are taking the law in to there own hands. witch btw can only be done as a citizen and you MUST be on your OWN property to lawfully accomplish this. this is known as a citizen's arrest. so in order for them to take action, in to there own hands they WILL be breaking the law.|
@kingtiger01: thanks man......Ive been thinking about all this and looking in to some things and it dawned on me. so ya we are actually obeying the law. there the ones breaking it.
