Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, looms ahead.

CISPA, which emerged in 2012, has been reborn this week as an even bigger threat to online freedom. If CISPA is passed, the US government gains the power to shut off Internet traffic and empowers the US government to ask your ISP about your online activities in the efforts to learn about possible cyber security threats and Internet attacks. Advocated under the premise of anti-terrorism legislation, this legislation is so broad that it threatens to endanger the privacy of every individual and ordinary and law abiding citizens. This act makes your private online activity now public, giving ISPs the right to share your personal information completely without your knowledge, due process, or authorization.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation and namecheap are fighting this act.

For each tweet or Facebook share about this threat, using the buttons on the link below, you will increase the amount namecheap donates to the EFF foundation by $0.10.

Please take a moment and follow this link to the namecheap page containing more information and the Facebook/Twitter buttons. Thank you.
