Submission + - SOPA was not worst threat to web rights (itworld.com)

DillyTonto writes: Getting Congress to shelve SOPA was a big win, but also an anomaly in environment in which individual rights of speech and privacy are denigrated by far more direct intrusions. Taps recording Internet activity, cell-phone account records, Internet histories, financial data, personal associations are all available to commercial and government agencies citing largely unconstitutional new rules. Score 1 for SOPA opponents, but censors and snoops still have a commanding lead.
