Rep. Ron Paul: Corporations Will “Act As Government Spies’ Under CISPA

Presidential candidate Ron Paul, a Republican Congressman from Texas, has emerged as the leading opponent of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), widely billed as a follow-up to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a controversial set of Internet regulations killed earlier this year by an online mass work stoppage protest.

In a video released Monday morning, Paul called CISPA “an Internet monitoring bill” that would enable the government and corporations to review citizens’ private communications without any judicial oversight.

The bill proposes an information sharing scheme between the National Security Agency (NSA) and corporate networks under the auspice of cyber security, and defines “cyber threat intelligence” to include details pertaining to the “theft or misappropriation” of “intellectual property.”
