First there were SOPA, PIPA, ACTA and OPEN. Now there is going to be Yet Another Attempt to enact draconian legislation through mislabeling the real purpose of IP legislation by inserting it as a rider to law supposedly intended to help in combatting Cyber-terrorism: CISPA.
From the link below: "It's a little piece of Sopa [the Stop Online Piracy Act] wrapped up in a bill that's supposedly designed to facilitate detection of and defence against cyber-security threats. The language is so vague that an ISP could use it to monitor communications of subscribers for potential infringement of intellectual property." In effect this law is directed against file-sharers, not Cyber terrorism. http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-17730266 -- -- Jussi-Ville Heiskanen, ~ [[User:Cimon Avaro]] _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l
