While an important matter for sure, CISPA is nothing like SOPA and is also nowhere near a fraction as apocalyptic as the SOPA bill was. The "x is the new SOPA" craze whenever a new Internet-related bill hits has to stop, it hurts the credibility of anti-censorship activism.

Agree with Reese - It seems that every law regarding the internet is being labelled as "the new SOPA" these days.  This is actually the "new" SOPA -

But I haven't seen anything about OPEN since January, so I think that it has probably been shelved, too ... for the time being.
