We all remember the fervor over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) earlier this year.
Back in January, the GovLoop community had a lively discussion about the bill.
And while SOPA might be just but a memory, a new piece of legislation is now causing certain members of the Internet community consternation.
It’s called the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act — and some tech blogs are likening it to SOPA 2.0.
Others, however, don’t see this piece of legislation in the same light. Companies like Microsoft and Facebook aren’t as wary about CISPA, and Google also reportedly supports some aspects of the bill. (For the full story, please see this Slate article.)
All of this leads me to wonder … is CISPA the new SOPA?
What do you think? Should CISPA become law? Is more legislation like this needed — or is Congress going too far?
