The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, has been reintroduced as a bill in the House of Representatives. The bill was stopped in the senate last year but may have another chance to be passed into law.

From the link: “The new CISPA — just like the old CISPA — would protect companies like Facebook and Microsoft from legal liability when they hand over your sensitive online data to the federal government, without any regard for your privacy. The bill would permit the government — including the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security — to use that information for matters that have nothing to do with cybersecurity.”
