Congress VOTES on CISPA

Congress is currently debating and preparing to vote on CISPA. According to supporters of CISPA, the bill that allows corporations to spy on Americans without the same restrictions of due process which government agencies are bound to follow, privacy invasion is ok as long as it is only used for circumstances directly related to “cyber security” and is a “voluntary process.” They also feel that having “bipartisan support” make privacy invasion ok.

So far the only specific examples of “cyber security” given are “intellectual property theft” and “child pornography”.

What do you think? Is copyright infringement and the old child porn scare tactic good enough reason to strip the entire nation of its privacy?
