Google acknowledges lobbying on cybersecurity bill CISPA

Google acknowledged in its latest lobbying disclosure form that it is working behind the scenes on a controversial cybersecurity bill, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).
The bill’s author, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), told The Hill last week that Google has been “supportive” of CISPA, which has angered some of the same Internet activists who joined with Google to defeat the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
A Google spokeswoman said that although the company is lobbying on the bill, it has not taken a public position.
