This actually came back to life last month after Obama signed an executive order and ordered that idiot Janet Napolitano to identify critical infrastructure. Of course, we all know what happens when Homeland Security gets involved in something. It turns into a massive cluster fuck.

Notice how there isn't a single technical company out there crying about this bill? This Bill would pretty much absolve every single company out there of passing personal information on to the government and they'd be immune to any legal action.

Re: CISPA 2.0 Passes House Intelligence Comittee

CISPA passed through the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee 10 April by a vote of 18-2.

Please voice your concerns. https://action.eff.org/o/9042/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=9137

The above link is for NON-US residents to voice their opinion to President Obama's office. The President promised a veto last time this came up, but there is reason for concern about his actions this time.

A link for US residents to contact their representatives is on the above-linked page.

edit:
Finished this post, then went looking for those 18 names. So now I get to amend the first line:
  CISPA passed the committee by an 18-2 closed-door vote!
