CISPA Is Dead: Senate To Shelve Controversial Bill

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


 

Privacy advocates can breathe a sigh of relief as the controversial US Cyber Information Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) appears to be all but dead in the water, with all signs pointing to it being shelved by the Senate.
 
The bill, which was purportedly designed to allow the federal government to share private user information with corporations in situations of a suspected cyber threat, was the source of widespread ire from privacy advocates.
 
Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), chairman of the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, confirmed that CISPA’s passage seemed unlikely due to the bill’s lack of privacy protections, which the Senator deemed “insufficient.”
 
BYE BYE!!   We win a second time, sweet sweet victory.  I’m thinking this time was just luck though.  I didnt see a whole lot of pressure from people but we were lucky :)   -Mort
