Online Privacy Act passes Judiciary Committee Vote
November 30, 2012 in Technology
November 30, 2012. Call it a victory for privacy rights and basic liberties.

Over bipartisan establishment opposition, and a last-second attempt to create a loophole by the powerful Committee Chair, the Bill now moves onto the full Senate for a vote.
