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.

They should work on their doublethink. They need to name the bill something like:

Internet Freedom Assurance Act

Much more effective. It worked for The Patriot Act.

After that, it should just be "PITA"*.

* ie, Pain In The Acts.
