Say hello to CISPA -- it's SOPA on steroids, from Hell, without love.

And getting barely any media attention. Let's change that, shall we?

more info from the Appeal-Democrat: "The new mischief is H.R. 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011, by Rep. Mike J. Rogers, R-Mich. Wait a minute. Weren't Republicans put back in charge of the House in November 2010 by an electorate that demanded less government?

According to the summary by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, H.R. 3523 "would let companies spy on users and share private information with the federal government and other companies with near-total immunity from civil and criminal liability. It effectively creates a 'cybersecurity' exemption to all existing laws." That means Google, Facebook or your phone company could collect your emails or phone messages for "cybersecurity purposes" — broadly defined — and share your information with other companies and government agencies."
