With CISPA cybersecurity bill on deck, Justin Amash reiterates privacy concerns
On his Facebook, Amash wrote he would oppose CISPA when it is brought to a vote.
“The bill grants corporations and other entities broad immunity to share your personal and confidential data (e.g., e-mails) with the government,” Amash wrote. “CISPA overrides contracts and even federal and state privacy laws.”
CISPA has been likened to two widely unpopular bills considered by Congress during the 2011-12 session: the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, and the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act, or PIPA.
