Like The Villain In A Bad Horror Movie, CISPA Just Won’t Stay Dead

The privacy-killing zombie-bill is stalled in the Senate, and today the Whitehouse released their response to a petition against CISPA. Thanks in part to the massive public outcry (yes, you) they made some strong statements in support of users’ rights to privacy.

But given that corporate lobbyists have already spent $605 Million on buying support, we can expect that CISPA will be back in some form soon enough. It’s likely that the Senate will split the bill up into several smaller bills that will be harder to keep track of and rally around.
