CISPA is Back.
Tell Obama: Veto this bill!
In the United States? Take action here instead.
The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is a bill that recently passed the United States House of Representatives and is headed to the Senate. It would create a gaping new exemption to existing privacy law. It would let any company, from AT&T to Zynga, including internet giants like Google or Facebook obtain "cyber threat" information (including personal and private information from your accounts) and disclose that data to the U.S. government. That includes non-U.S. users of these American services.
Worse yet, these companies are authorized to give this information to any U.S. government agency, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National Security Agency (NSA).
The Internet has called on President Barack Obama to veto this terrible bill. And he's already starting to listen -- advisors of Obama issued a statement that said they would urge the President to veto CISPA if it came to his desk.
We need to bolster this opposition by adding our voices. Please sign this petition to President Barack Obama asking him to stand up for Internet privacy and veto CISPA if it comes to his desk. Show him that the world is watching.

We urge you to veto the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). This bill has the same grave civil liberties problems as the version introduced last year, which you promised to veto.
CISPA would create a gaping loophole in all existing privacy law. It would let any company, from AT&T to Zynga, obtain “cyber threat” information (including personal and private information from my accounts) and disclose that data to the U.S. government.
CISPA is a bill that sacrifices liberty without improving security. We deserve both. Please defend the civil liberties of Internet users by renewing your commitment to veto CISPA.
