And so it begins: Google, Yahoo, Microsoft quietly back CISPA

CISPA

We thought that the nonsense was behind us when we stopped SOPA. The only thing we really did was teach Washington and the supporters in the technology world that if they want to destroy our privacy, they have to ease into it with more subtlety. Thus, CISPA was born.

We will go into much more detail about it in the very near future, but for now it’s important to note that companies that did not support SOPA (at least openly) have quietly thrown their support over to CISPA. According to RT:

A lobbying organization that counts Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Apple and other tech giants among its clients has lent support to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, which is lined up for a vote in the US House of Representatives next week.

This isn’t just a government issue, anymore, and they’re not getting the help of lightweights like GoDaddy. They’re getting help from the top of the technology food chain.This isn’t over. It’s just beginning. More to come…
