    CISPA scares me. The vagueness of how it could be applied makes me wonder if the Internet would/will even survive its’ passage.

    Why not test it in the courts? Seems to me it is a blatant violation of the 4th Amendment.

    How is it possible to even present such a law. Is there no sanction to people who try to advance their vested interests, to abuse their wealth and power to promote something that goes against the basic rights of “we the people”. It is not only a US matter, it is a global offense against human basic rights.
