Whenever you see a bill working its way through the Senate and Congress that has over half a billion dollars from corporate lobbyists behind it, you should probably take a closer look at it as a citizen. As it’s written, CISPA won’t protect us from cyber threats, but it will violate our 4th Amendment right to privacy.
- It lets the government spy on you without a warrant.
- It makes it so you can’t even find out about it after the fact.
- It makes it so companies can’t be sued when they do illegal things with your data.
- It allows corporations to cyber-attack each other and individuals outside of the law.
Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Please continue to take action and oppose CISPA.
