House Passes CISPA Spying Bill

CISPA, the cybersecurity bill that can put an end to people’s privacy on the Internet was approved by the House of Representatives today. The bill that can turn the Internet into an anti-piracy spying machine was widely protested online and in Washington. Despite this opposition CISPA was passed 248 to 168. The vote was initially scheduled for Friday, but the House decided to speed up the approval process. Several amendments to the original proposal were accepted during the hearing today. However, critics of the bill still believe it’s a major threat. “CISPA is a dangerous piece of legislation and it’s worrisome that the House has passed such an overreaching bill,” said Free Press Action Fund Policy Director Matt Wood. “The bill still lacks effective oversight and accountability for companies and government agencies collecting massive amounts of our personal data. It would curtail Internet openness and freedom by stripping away crucial privacy protections, and without providing any guarantee of protection for critical infrastructure.” Among other things, CISPA would make it easier for ISPs to share personal information of alleged copyright infringers with third parties. Over a million people signed petitions urging their representatives not to pass the bill, but without success. Source: House Passes CISPA Spying Bill

Occupy Oakland protester convicted of deterring an officer during Dec. 30 protest

OAKLAND — The trial of an Occupy Oakland protester was convicted Thursday of a felony count of deterring an officer during the performance of his duties but a jury deadlocked on another charge and finding the man guilty of a misdemeanor on a third count. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office prosecuted 47-year-old Cameron Rose on suspicion of striking Oakland police Officer Patrick Gerrans with a metal folding chair at a protest at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza on Dec. 30. Rose was also charged with resisting arrest on Jan. 22 when authorities tried to arrest him on a warrant for the Dec. 30 incident. The most serious charge against Rose, who’s been in jail in lieu of $130,000 bail since he was arrested, was a felony count of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer with force likely to produce great bodily injury. But jurors on Thursday only convicted him of the lesser included offense of simple misdemeanor assault. Jurors also deadlocked on the misdemeanor resisting arrest charge for the Jan. 22 incident. Jurors announced their guilty verdict on the deterring an officer felony count on Tuesday. They deliberated for a total of four days. In his closing argument in Rose’s trial last week, prosecutor Tim Wagstaffe said Rose struck Gerrans while the officer was “defenseless” because his head was turned in the opposite direction as he was helping other officers detain another protester, Carly Bate, who had refused an Wagstaffe said Gerrans “is lucky he was wearing a protective vest” but still felt a sharp pain in his back and neck. But Rose’s lawyer, Alameda County Associate Public Defender Kathleen Guneratne, told jurors that Rose should be found not guilty of all the charges against him because the prosecution failed to prove its case against him beyond a reasonable doubt. Guneratne said Gerrans was not acting lawfully during the Dec. 30 protest because he should have known that his fellow officers didn’t have probable cause to arrest Bate. She said, “Police have to follow the rules” and alleged that Oakland officers had no authority to arrest Bate because she and other Occupy Oakland protesters had a permit to be at Ogawa Plaza.

Occupy Oakland calls for general strike on Tuesday

OAKLAND, Calif. Occupy Oakland members are calling for a general strike on Tuesday — May Day — as a show of unity between union and non-union workers. Group members announced their plans at a news conference this morning at Telegraph Avenue and Broadway, which was the starting point for a general strike in 1946 as well as for a large Occupy Oakland protest last Nov. 2 that culminated in a march to the Port of Oakland to shut it down. Occupy Oakland is calling for “no work, no school and no business as usual” on Tuesday. Member Steven Angell said, “We want people to get out of work and get out of school and join us on the street. However, Angell said, there aren’t any plans to shut down the Port of Oakland this time around. Occupy Oakland members have also said they will attempt to shut down the Golden Gate Bridge Tuesday if bridge, bus and ferry workers, who are involved in ongoing labor negotiations with the bridge district, decide to strike. Occupy Oakland spokeswoman Lauren Smith said earlier this week that the Golden Gate Labor Coalition reached out to the group, citing its experience organizing massive blockades. “Occupy Oakland has and will continue to support picket lines,” Smith said. “We stand in solidarity with workers.” The website for Occupy Oakland states that buses will be available Tuesday morning to take protesters from Oakland to the bridge.

Megaupload’s Kim Dotcom Races Kimi Raikkonen [Video]

Now that Kim Dotcom has regained access to the Internet, he can finally get back to work. One of his priorities is obviously to show that he and Megaupload are innocent, but there are some side projects to take care of as well. In a few weeks he will launch his personal website, which he promised will be very exciting. But there’s more. Posting a video of him and Megaupload colleague Finn Batato racing Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen on the Nürburgring for example. Not your average home-video, as it involved 30 cameras, a 100+ crew, 2 helicopters, 2 camera cars and one fixed wing aircraft. And of course the video wouldn’t be complete without a professionally produced soundtrack. Kim posted some more details on YouTube. ( via / via ) Kim Dotcom, Kimi Raikkonen and Finn Batato on the Nürburgring Norschleife with three highly modified Mercedes Benz AMG CLK DTM supercars. A fun day on the most famous race track in the world. This video shows a full lap around the ring. It took 20 laps to get all the shots for this video. It’s a homage to the Nurburgring, the CLK DTM and Kimi Raikkonen, one of the best drivers in the world. I DID NOT WIN against Kimi. I never could. We had to remove the air from his tires to keep up. And even then it was impossible :-) I used to play Forza and Need for Speed on Xbox Live. Those games inspired me to create a video that looks like the replay of a perfect lap on the Ring. I know it isn’t perfect, but I tried. The production involved 30 cameras, 100+ crew, 2 helicopters, 2 camera cars and one fixed wing aircraft. The song “Take me away” was produced by Kim Dotcom and Printz Board. P.S. The final edit was seized by the FBI during the Megaupload raid. It will be uploaded as soon as it returns (if ever). The current version has a few problems and no color correction. Sorry. Thank you Kimi Raikkonen. Source: Megaupload’s Kim Dotcom Races Kimi Raikkonen [Video]

Megaupload Domain Goes Up for Sale, Again

The domain name Megaupload.net was just put up for auction again on SEDO. Two weeks ago we reported that the domain, which didn’t belong to Megaupload, was sold to an anonymous bidder but this person didn’t pay up. “After numerous attempts by Sedo.com to contact the buyer I was given the option to re-list the domain for sale. The second option was to hire a lawyer and sue the buyer,” Megaupload.net’s current owner told TorrentFreak. “I decided not to sue the individual for non-payment because he lives on the other side of the world, in Kazakhstan.” Those who are interested in the domain name will have to cough up a few thousand dollars . And once you bought it… what then? Starting a cyberlocker on the domain will be a tricky venture. Not only will the US Government keep a close eye the site, Kim Dotcom and friends may also sue for trademark infringement. Source: Megaupload Domain Goes Up for Sale, Again
