Join Namecheap and EFF in Stopping CISPA

The domain name registrar Namecheap is running an awareness campaign against CISPA, the dangerous cybersecurity bill—and they're donating $1 to EFF for each tweet (#CISPAalert), Facebook share, and domain name bought using the code CISPAalert. Namecheap, a staunch opponent of SOPA last year, is now taking charge of spreading the word about CISPA's threats to your privacy.

To join in the campaign, you can use Namecheap's suggested shares on Facebook or on Twitter, or you can use our own tweet:

Join @EFF & @Namecheap in opposing CISPA, the dangerous surveillance bill. Contact Congress: https://eff.org/r.2bJf #CISPAalert

You can also register or transfer a domain name, and if you use the coupon code CISPAalert, you save a dollar. Each one of these actions—and further shares from your friends and followers—helps spread awareness about CISPA and supports EFF.

We need more companies to join Namecheap in opposing harmful cybersecurity legislation. CISPA bypasses existing privacy laws to allow companies to monitor their users and share potentially sensitive data with the government without a warrant, all in the name of "cybersecurity." The bill's language has disturbingly vague language and provides little oversight.

To truly stop CISPA, we need to raise awareness and contact Congress. By participating in Namecheap's campaign, you are not only getting the word out about this dangerous cybersecurity bill, but you are also supporting EFF in the process. Be sure to contact your members of Congress asking them to oppose this privacy-invasive bill.
