Internet Groups Protest Cyber Intelligence Bill

Opposition to pending cyber-security legislation ramped up today when several high-profile Internet groups joined forces to protest the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011 (CISPA). A coalition of Internet advocacy groups -- including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and Reporters Without Borders -- launched "a week of Internet-wide protests", which calls on Web users to tweet their lawmakers with their opposition to the bill.
