What information that service providers and app providers are currently not authorized to share under the 1986 ECPA would become lawful to share under this act?

The vagueness of this bill IS the problem. Vagueness in the law makes for really bad laws.

Give me one reason I should support this bill.

I don't support it (I think it's a NOP designed solely to gain attention for its sponsors), so I certainly won't be offering you any such arguments.

Where I take exception is with efforts to stir up hysteria about it.

Valid concern ≠ hysteria.

Sure, that's true. But not all the concerns regarding CISPA are valid.

Which ones?
