From the IP Law Wiki:
“The FISA Improvements Act is a proposed act by Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Prompted by the disclosure of NSA surveillance by Edward Snowden, it would establish the surveillance program as legal, but impose some limitations on availability of the data. Opponents say the bill would codify warrantless access to many communications of American citizens for use by domestic law enforcement.”

Many people are will join in a protest against the FISA Improvements Act on 11 February. By the time i posted this, 5,227 sites have joined the protest, including Reddit, Duck Duck Go, Tumblr, Imgur, Mozilla, and Wikia. It’s the same as the SOPA and PIPA’s protests, except this law is about the NSA surveillance. Here is a link: https://thedaywefightback.org/

Has anyone noticed that there are almost no advancements on human rights, privacy and other things lately? I think I know why.

Exactly, people just forgot all the things, and the corruption is on the boom that anyone can not do anything..!

And especially because people don’t protest against the laws that have already been in effect. I bet if there was no DMCA today and organizations would threaten to make that into law, it would cause a massive uproar!
