I haven't been reading much in the forums regarding this bill as the vote for it inches closer and closer and I'm wondering why that may be.
Do we not think this has much of a chance of being attached and/or the CISPA bill passing so there's not too much chatter about it ?
Facebook supports this bill and, while I've read how imperfect and broad this bill is, I wonder if everyone is realizing this is a jagged pill to swallow if poker becomes a rider to CISPA, and perhaps that's why we're not hearing more about this on the eve of the CISPA vote..? I'd appreciate any insight you all may have on a) this bill passing and b) if a poker bill could end up as an attachment to it.
Thanks in advance
It's allegedly the new SOPA. The whole internet rized up against SOPA only for it to be re-marketed under new name.
They pointed out that CISPA has nothing to do with domain seizures. This is true on the surface, yet under the hood the bill is designed to give the Homeland Security entities involved in ongoing domain seizures a broad range of shiny new tools to use for shutdowns.
This has to be the most fascist country in this century.
