Facebook, the social network behemoth that is about to become a multi-billion dollar company, has been lobbying for a proposed new U.S. law called the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) that would allow companies to share information with government agencies.

Under CISPA, private companies may spy on user communications, whether stored or in transit, and freely pass personal information to the government as long as they claim a vague "cybersecurity" exception.

Why would Facebook push for a law that would cause them to lose customers? Seems rather stupid of them from a business standpoint.

My sense is that not many would know about their involvement nor how it may affect them. Here is an article from "mainstream" press and no mention of Facebook.
