CISPA Blackout Protest 200+ sites blacked out

As various time zones begin ticking over to April 22, an Anonymous-led Web blackout has begun that will reportedly include over 200 sites suspending regular operations in protest of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) that recently passed the US House of Representatives.

Anonymous and other groups called for the blackout last week using the hashtags #CISPAblackout and #StopCISPA.

It sounds to me like big companies are ok with it because it remove liability from them. They don't care about your data as long as they don't get in trouble for it. It is up to us, the people, to care about ourselves. Is there any hope of that?
