It's working: Nearly 200,000 people have signed our open letter, and Facebook is responding to our criticism of its support for CISPA.

CISPA is the new bill that would obliterate online privacy, give the military crazy new abilities to spy on the Internet, and potentially let ISPs block sites and cut off users accused of piracy.

Facebook released a statement that says:

The overriding goal of any cybersecurity bill should be to protect the security of networks and private data, and we take any concerns about how legislation might negatively impact Internet users’ privacy seriously.

That's good news, and it means the pressure we're putting on Facebook is working.

But it also means that Facebook never should have signed up as a supporter of CISPA to begin with.
