  • CISPA bill - how will it affect us?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22182117

    According to this website, this new US information bill will affect everyone who uses US-based services such as Google and Facebook, which is most of us! :ohwell: https://action.eff.org/o/9042/p/dia/...ction_KEY=9137
    The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is a bill recently introduced in the United States that would create a gaping new exemption to existing privacy law. It would let any company, from AT&T to Zynga, including internet giants like Google or Facebook obtain "cyber threat" information (including personal and private information from your accounts) and disclose that data to the U.S. government. That includes non-U.S. users of these American services.
