Attention webizens… today is the launch that the Internet Defense League. In their own words: “When the internet’s in danger and we need millions of people to act, the League will ask its members to broadcast an action. (Say, a prominent message asking everyone to call their elected leaders.) With the combined reach of our websites and social networks, we can be massively more effective than any one organization.”
A lot of people on the net lately have been pushing the idea that CISPA is the new SOPA. That may be overstating things a bit, but it doesn’t change the fact that CISPA is yet another bad piece of legislation penned by people who seem to have no clue about how the internet works.
