After killing SOPA, Internet activists take aim at a new House cybersecurity bill
I’m getting really sick of these broadly written bills. Perhaps more so than SOPA, I can’t really disagree with the purpose of this bill, however the fact that the language does not set barriers that could limit personal information about users companies can share and when with the government is really frustrating. It’s a pretty ridiculous excuse when the lawmakers say that it’s okay because they aren’t going to interpret the law like that. If that’s the case, why not just change the language to better fit the specific definition that can be agreeable? I have to stress though, stay informed and read the details for yourself. Don’t just take everyone calling this “SOPA 2.0” as automatic truth. Like I said, I can’t disagree with the purpose and the importance of protecting people from hackers, we just need language that maintains the users rights at the same time.
