We are the ACLU and the EFF and we have teamed up to fight the good fight against CISPA. Ask us anything.
On Wednesday, the House will mark up CISPA, the dangerous "cybersecurity" bill that will have huge effects on Internet privacy. Can you help us stop it? AMA.
We'll begin answering questions at 1pm eastern sharp.
Answering questions today are:
- Michelle Richardson (Richardson_Mich), legislative counsel at the ACLU
- Trevor Timm (TrevorEFF), activist and blogger at EFF
- Mark Jaycox (jaycoxEFF), policy analyst and legislative assistant at EFF
- Adi Kamdar (adiEFF), activist at EFF
- Rainey Reitman (raineyr), activism director at EFF

Contact your members of Congress and tell them to oppose this dangerous privacy busting bill: https://action.eff.org/o/9042/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=9048
UPDATE:The pace of questions is picking up so we're going to keep going until 5:30pm eastern, but Michelle will keep answering questions sporadically over the next day or so. If you haven't done so, please take action above by asking President Obama to veto CISPA and/or tell your members of Congress to oppose this privacy-busting bill.
