Hi all, please read what they have up their sleeves this time:

Full Text:
GovTrack: S. 773: Text of Legislation, Introduced in Senate

Article from the EFF: Federal Authority Over the Internet? The Cybersecurity Act of 2009 | Electronic Frontier Foundation

Basically, the government wants to take over the internet for the purposes of maintaining security.

" the bill would give the Commerce Department absolute, non-emergency access to “all relevant data” without any privacy safeguards like standards or judicial review. The broad scope of this provision could eviscerate statutory protections for private information, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Privacy Protection Act, or financial privacy regulations. Even worse, it isn’t clear whether this provision would require systems to be designed to enable access,"

Talk about the Ultimate Big Brother bill!!! They want the right to monitor everything you do on the internet. They also plan on taking over the communications for critcal infrastructure such as banks, telecommunications, energy. So, they will have warrantless access to all of your personal data, bank account, credit info, medical data and pretty much anything else they want. They don't like you, they can shut down your network access without any due process.
