Internet & Networking The SOPA and PIPA laws were defeated in the U.S. just months ago, and already the forces for internet control are back. Up for vote this week, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) would override all privacy laws so that private companies (like ISPs) can share all information with the U.S. government. No warrants or other authorization required. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) points out the problems with this law. Like SOPA and PIPA, the privacy issues and monitoring could reach far beyond U.S. borders.

that's the best comment I've read for yonks

..hell yeah let's get a compulsory requirement in for
double-blind randomised controlled anti-wank trials of all policy and prospective legislation(heck, even current legislation!)

obviously the U.S., probably where I live, the U.K. can provide some of the wank law and policy data, you know - along with Iran, Zimbabwe, the Philippines and so on

and maybe Sweden and possibly Thom's place, on a good day - can provide some examples of better policy -- obviously this can't be fully interpreted until the results of the anti-wank trials are in.

but when they are eventually in, they can help inform, scratch that, mandate the implementation of similar laws by the new U.N. 3.0 - the government of us, aka the New Earth republic of Gaia
