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.

I'm always impressed how much man power they put in restricting freedom.
But wait it's surely to fight again terrorism and child pr0n ...
Also wonder why they do this with a vote since they already do it for years (Echelon ...)

Probably because the Echelon people won't share their data with common law enforcement.
