Some of the biggest names in the tech industry have issued a public protest against the proposed Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) working through US Congress.

An open letter protesting the bill was sent by the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA), an industry body whose members include Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Nvidia, eBay, and Yahoo!

The CCIA says that the legislation, as written, will have dire consequences for the American IT industry. (And, we presume, great news for non-US tech companies.)

This seemed like a bad idea the first time they introduced it. I hope that they are not successful getting this approved this time around either.

Sad/Odd thing is that overseas news has this and media in USA does not. That's one of the beauties of the 'net, and why I don't trust just one source (other than webmasterworld!).
