CISPA: nothing to hide, nothing to fear, right?

“You may believe that as you’re not a terrorist or child pornographer, the government should have no reason to (read your email, facebook messages, forum postings, web history, pretty much anything you’ve ever done on the internet), but the problem is the language in this bill is so loose, they can access your information for almost any reason at all. Ever visited a torrent site or watched an unofficial YouTube video of copyrighted material? Ever reposted a picture without the explicit permission of the rights holder? Well, you’re now tangentially related to a cybersecurity crime, and your entire internet history is fair game for careful examination. And don’t think Google Chrome Incognito mode will save you.”
