Obama is about to create an ‘online police state’ with his updates to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). On the heels of attacks on Sony, Obama states he will ‘modernize laws’ to help protect citizens.
However, what he is actually doing is creating updates to CFAA that are so vague that it criminalizes the slightest association with illegal activity.
For example, someone could hack into a website and obtain information, place that on their website and if you click a link leading to that site, you could be found guilty of a criminal act.
It’s important to oppressive regimes that they be able to dig up dirt on anyone they wish to disappear.
