Legal "A trade association that represents Google, Yahoo, Cisco and Oracle has come out in support of a controversial cybersecurity bill that is slated to be voted on in the House next week. In a letter sent to the leaders of the House Intelligence panel on Wednesday, TechNet CEO Rey Ramsey said the cybersecurity bill addresses the need for industry and government to be able to send and receive information about cyber threats to one another in real time." As I've said before - legal or no, stuff like this is corruption.

OK, maybe I missed something somewhere, but where does this bill actually affect user data? It sound like this bill is about sharing the kind of info that would eventually be sent to the different security based groups. It didn't mention that they were going to share user info. At least in the security realm, full disclosure is to be applauded, as it makes for better security. Can someone point to the part that is bad?
