30,000 Websites State Opposition to Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) Reintroduced By Congress

by Colonel on March 19, 2013

“Reddit, Craigslist and more than 30,000 other websites are flying the flag of opposition to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, a controversial cybersecurity bill that was recently reintroduced in Congress.

The thousands of websites which oppose CISPA will, starting Tuesday, be displaying an interactive banner ad (seen below) from the Internet Defense League that allows voters to send the following message to their members of Congress: “CISPA is back. This bill sacrifices privacy without improving security. We deserve both.”

“CISPA takes away people’s 4th amendment right to privacy,” said Tiffiny Cheng of Fight for the Future and the Internet Defense League, an Internet activist organization which is organizing an anti-CISPA “Week of Action.”

The Internet Defense League is a product of Fight for the Future and includes Mozilla, WordPress, Public Knowledge, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, among other[s].
