Is CISPA the new SOPA?
The short answer to that is probably no, especially with recent amendments that have been added to address some of the privacy and civil liberty concerns.
A few things from my perspective: Hats off to Obama who had said that he would definitely veto this bill as it stood without the amendments. And kudos to Ron Paul and several Democrats who really started to raise a stink about this, but most of all, this is another example of the People’s power by voicing their concerns and contacting their representation. This thing hasn’t been as big as the SOPA protests in January, but still—it’s nice to see.
Of course, this thing still sucks even with the amendments…we don’t need it, in my opinion. Let’s keep their feet to the fire. Contact your Representative immediately. It is scheduled to hit the House on Friday.
