Mozilla first Silicon Valley company to oppose CISPA
Thursday - 5/3/2012, 9:42am EDT
The company says the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act — or CISPA — has a "broad and alarming reach."
In a message to Forbes Magazine, a Mozilla official writes, "The bill infringes on our privacy...and grants immunities to companies and governments that are too broad around information misuse."
Others in the industry either like the bill or have taken no position...according to Forbes.
Supporters on Capitol Hill say CISPA would encourage the private sector to share tips with the government on cybersecurity threats, even those tips contained in users' private information.
President Obama has threatened to veto the bill.
