CISPA Vote of the Day: CISPA — the most unpopular bill on the Internet, no matter what Facebook says — passed late Thursday with a 248-168 vote in the GOP-controlled House.
What you might have missed, helpfully pointed out by Forbes‘ Andy Greenberg:

Even before it passed, the House voted to amend the bill to actually allow even more types of private sector information to be shared with government agencies, not merely in matters of cybersecurity or national security, but in the investigation of vaguely defined cybersecurity “crimes,” “protection of individuals the danger of death or serious bodily harm,” and cases where that involve the protection of minors from exploitation.

The CISPA fight now heads to the Democrat-controlled Senate. If the bill manages to reach his desk, President Obama has threatened a veto.
