House Passes CISPA





Mr_Howl
Vote break down by state and party.

And here I was thinking Republicans were in favor of small government.

Hopefully the Senate has more sense.

Obama has threatened a veto, but he also said he would veto the NDAA, and he's been doing some other "pro-1984" stuff lately, IIRC. So that's really no reassurance at all.[/url]

Hopefully, yes, on the House or the Veto.

I just read a brief overview of it, and don't see much I disagree with. I am all for smaller government, but I think criminals should be caught and punished and it seems to me this legislature does little more than help stop cybercrime.

I feel like the web is currently like the state of the wild wild west was at one point in our history. It's a frontier land where vigilante justice is about the only kind of justice!

So what exactly do you all disagree with and why?

I'm okay with this.
Cyber security should be the individual responsibility of people and organizations that use the internet... not the responsibility of the government.

Insufficient safeguards against the misuse of collected information.

Bills aren't written for you to disagree with them. They always sound good--"Save the children" and all that.

Remember--Big Brother only watches so that he can protect you.

Anyway, here's an infographic.

I'm a little cynical about this. For me quite a bit of legislation is pushed through so that those who do it can earn their keep after having been elected through support of heavy duty large corporations. I pat your back, you pat my back. This "in the interest of public safety" is a very nice tool for pushing legislation through that is there to serve the legislation's sponsors more than the public or its safety.

Yep...
Looks like they won't rest until they get something SOPA-like written into law...

Obama is running for another 4 years, and the other option is Romney.

*100%*

I still have hopes that common sense will break out and prevail in discussions about Internet regulation.

Yes, there's an awful lot of precedent in politics for common sense not breaking out at all, but I still have hopes.

Not when big money is on the side against common sense it won't.

It was truly inspiring that public outcry was able to override money concerns and defeat the original bill... But public outcry has a limited attention span... and money doesn't.
