The U.S. Constitution guarantees protection from search and seizure without probable cause. CISPA strips away that bedrock privacy protection from our online information. If CISPA becomes law, online companies would no longer be allowed to respect the privacy commitments they have already made to customers both in the U.S. and around the world.
We understand that some companies in the video game and technology industries might be tempted to support this bill because CISPA enables them to evade liability. However, we urge all companies worldwide to respect their existing privacy policies and to respect their customers' rights by withdrawing support from CISPA and similar bills.
As the White House said, "Citizens have a right to know that corporations will be held accountable and not granted immunity for failing to safeguard personal information adequately."
