EFF IN THE NEWS

A left-right defense of privacy rights

April 29, 2013

Described by the Electronic Frontier Foundation as “digital big brother,” CISPA is a sweeping proposal to bypass existing privacy law and allow corporations to spy on personal communications and pass sensitive user data to the government.

"CISPA is a poorly drafted bill that would provide a gaping exception to bedrock privacy law,” says EFF staff attorney Kurt Opsahl. “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."
