Last year, after making it through the gauntlet of SOPA and PIPA, we wondered if we’d have to worry about yet another bit of Internet regulation, CISPA, aka the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.

While the legislation is progressing further, and was passed in the House yesterday, the Obama administration is likely to veto it. [More]

We Said 'So Long' To SOPA — Should We Be Worrying About CISPA Now?

Just when you think the tricky tricksters are done trying to take away our online freedom, they pop back up. We might need to start playing whack-a-mole again like we did during the anti-SOPA/PIPA days way back when in January — there’s a new law on the block aimed at restricting online rights. CISPA, everyone. Everyone, CISPA. [More]
