    Found this on 8chan /tech/, and on /pol/. Will copy one of those OPs verbatim.

    Saw this on /tech/, reposting:

    So the David Cameron recently proposed banning encryption, Obama sided with him, now Obama introduced yet another insane proposal to update the US CFFA law against hacking.

    If you click a link that contains illegal material, leaked information, if you're in an IRC channel or a online conversation, a forum, a chan, a Twitter discussion and some people are talking about hacking or something else illegal, even if you have nothing to do with it, if you go to Wikileaks, if you access leaked Snowden documents you can be prosecuted and sent to jail for up to 10 years.

    In other words, every one of us who lives in the US is a criminal if they becomes a law.


    What does this mean for us? I bolded what it means.
    These are also the same people who are pushing for the removal of encryption.

    Really? As if this is in the least bit enforceable. Just like watching pirated films online is illegal, doesn't stop most of the population from doing it, because they know it's impossible to catch everyone.
