The Electronic Frontier Foundation had earlier urged the House to make an amendment which would have enabled companies to make a privacy contract with their customers. Electronic Frontier Foundation senior staff attorney Kurt Opsahl said that CISPA is a poorly drafted bill that will usher in a gaping exception to privacy law.

"While we all agree that our nation needs to address pressing Internet security issues, this bill sacrifices online privacy while failing to take common-sense steps to improve security," Opsahl said.
