The eternal "trade-off between freedom and security? The Cyber-Intelligence Sharing Protection Act (CISPA) would push information-sharing between business and government – to prevent “catastrophic attack on our nation’s vital networks.” The feds could access personal and private communications. Supported by Facebook and Microsoft, the bill is fiercely opposed by Google and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. EFF claims provisions are far too vague, using threat of cyber-crimes to distract from infringements on free speech. The sad thing? Our privacy defenders are clueless how to handle this. Concept-blind. They rail against inevitable things while failing to use leverage to demand real concessions. The kind that might actually defend freedom.
