Hi.
 
This topic has no interaction with anything related to Myriad, or even music, and I am sorry for that.
 
The background
I believe that probably many people around here are very aware of the existence of previous similar laws such as ACTA and SOPA, which made an unbelievable noise in the whole world. CISPA however, is much more silent and unknown than the two mentioned before. I am quite curious why this topic hasn't been explored before on this website, as the knowledge of this "thing" has been spreading around the internet quite a lot. Nevertheless, it is good to inform people who had not yet taken contact with such things; I apologize to those who already know these things.
 
CISPA
In a very short description, the topic is an act called CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) developed by the United States government that potentially threatens most of the internet users. Basically, this act enforces a policy through which data that people share with private companies over the internet is going to be shared with government agencies without any sort of limit, which means that nearly anyone who uses the internet opens a window through he or she can be cibernetically spied without any kind of warrant and without any kind of consideration for civil liberties. This includes any sort of data that might be collected from profiles on online services, data that can be retrieved from the user's online activity, as well as (probably the most important) personal communications.
So in other terms, personal privacy is practically flushed.
The text of this bill contains broad definitions, which potentially extend to the dangerous considerations stated above and even more...
The pretext of this bill is protection against cyber attacks, but it obviously represents much more than a defensive act against attacks.
Fortunately, due to pressures created by several organizations, the original text of the bill, which included yet other threats dealing with "intellectual rights" (which brings us one step closer to SOPA) was changed. However, the act still remains a dangerous idea.
Another dangerous problem is that this bill is also supported by important companies such as Microsoft, Intel or Facebook.
 
If you want to read more, here is the actual text, here is a place for online petitions trying to stop the happening of the act, and just google CISPA to find all necessary information.
 
Thanks for reading.
 
Ramses

Bad news. CISPA passed the vote in a fast voting session today. The bill still needs to be approved by a few other committees until it is actually applied, which includes the president himself, who has previously stated that he wouldn't accept such a law. However we should not rest easy thinking that everything will be fine, because it might not be.

Hi,
It is very possible that this working in the entire world is already really. I have listened that the British service of Intelligence detects in each mail the such words as: terrorist, terrorism, bomb, attack, armed attack...    
The true attack is to the freedom and each person's privacy, in every nation.    
Habitually the big Social-Nets (Faceboock, Twetter, Google etc) they sell to good price all the data of their users. Then, this becomes spam or espionage. It is the sad reality..

@jorge grillo: Of course.  But that would not yet be strictly speaking legal and official.

I think everyone should have privacy. And no one but him, should know this. CISPA for the crime is a cool idea. But suddenly, in CISPA will work employee who wants to sell the information to the same cyber thieves about good people, such as musicians,actors, businessmans and etc. What us I do then? If this law would work, we will have to be used for surfing in the Internet Anonymous VPN services such as Hideman software, or other. Let's wait what will happen in the future.

Maybe this can be used. This place offers a free, gratuitous software that avoids the generation of a virtual identity (I.P.).  
Greetings.

Yeah, proxies are pretty good to use. Unfortunately, unless it is a really complicated system, they can be broken in the end.
There also are a few tools which can be used to defend ourselves. I personally use a combination of software from EFF (https://www.eff.org/code) and things like:
Better Privacy - http://nc.ddns.us/BetterPrivacy/BetterPrivacy.htm?rdr=AhC%3Avkws%40aAwL% 23JU%20~
Ghostery - http://www.ghostery.com/
Adblock Plus - https://adblockplus.org/en/
HTTPS Everywhere - https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/
duckduckgo.com as a search engine (everyone knows that Google is evil  )
...and I will probably try the TOR system. But of course, all this might still be far from having real security and anonymity.

Surveillance now not only on the Internet and communications, but on the streets, by using drones and other Sci-Fi stuff.
Imagine you run daily on the street because you like to be healthy, or you stay in a bus for an hour because you like to watch images passing by. Too bad sooner or later you will be declared suspicious by an advanced and intelligent technology surveillance system and you might end up in jail
 
On the other hand, the good news is that yesterday, july 4th, ACTA died, being rejected by the European Parliament.

El problema, en definitiva, es que existe una cantidad de individuos que vive para alterar la vida normal de los demás.Si no existiera el terrorismo, tampoco tendría sentido saber acerca de las intimidades de los que utilizan Internet.Es el problema del huevo y la gallina: ¿quien fué primero?Si las Torres Gemelas todavía estuvieran en pié, no habría excusas para tanta vigilancia y derroche de tecnología.Saludos a los amigos.
