Digital Journal recently reported on CISPA, the official title of this controversial act being H.R. 3523, and that it is feared that CISPA is far worse than SOPA and PIPA in its possible effects on the Internet. Now Demand Progress is reporting that, despite his remarks recently about protecting privacy and the free internet, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook is actually in support of the act.

Facebook supports CISPA
Facebook has signed on in support of CISPA, the new bill which would potentially let ISPs block websites, cut off users accused of piracy and give the military broad new abilities to spy on the internet. The Center for Democracy and Technology has said, "CISPA has a very broad, almost unlimited definition of the information that can be shared with government agencies and it supersedes all other privacy laws." It is suggested that internet users visit their web page to find out more about CISPA. According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation: "An ISP could even interpret this bill as allowing them to block accounts believed to be infringing, block access to websites like The Pirate Bay believed to carry infringing content, or take other measures provided they claimed it was motivated by cybersecurity concerns."

Dear AT&T, Facebook, Microsoft, Verizon, and all the companies supporting CISPA,

We believe that cyber security is important, but it should not come at the expense of our civil liberties. As your users, and because we value our privacy, we urge you to stand up for our rights and drop your support of the the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.

What is Facebook thinking?  They've signed on in support of CISPA -- the new bill that would obliterate online privacy, give the military crazy new abilities to spy on the Internet, and potentially let ISPs block sites and cut off users accused of piracy.

CISPA Is The New SOPA: Help Kill It

Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.  It's up for a vote later this month.

CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.
