Sample CISPA Blackout Page HTML to save you the time

Apr 20th, 2013 | By | Category: Internet, Technology

Just incase you are planning on blacking out your site(s) on April 22nd, 2013 I’ve made a sample CISPA page which I think is pretty decent.  All you have to do is save it as index.html and put it in your domains root folder/directory.  Obviously you’ll want to back up your existing index.html file first.

The code can be found here: and if you want to see what it looks like in action you can go here:

Or I’ll just paste it below.  Do me a favor and help me spread the word by upvoting this article on reddit, sharing on twitter, facebook, etc etc

Don’t know what CISPA IS?

For the next 24 hours we will be blacking out the website to raise awareness of a very controversial bill called <font color=”#fff”>CISPA</font> that the government is trying to sneak in under our noses. A bill that will irreparably destroy fundamental rights to privacy that citizens everywhere are entitled to. Please take today as a day of focus and action to learn about this destructive bill and what you can do to prevent it from becomming a reality.</b>

Right now, the US Congress is sneaking in a new law that gives them big brother spy powers over the entire web — and they’re hoping the world won’t notice. We helped stop their Net attack last time, let’s do it again. <BR><BR>

Over 100 Members of Congress are backing a bill (CISPA) that would give private companies and the US government the right to spy on any of us at any time for as long as they want without a warrant. This is the third time the US Congress has tried to attack our Internet freedom. But we helped beat SOPA, and PIPA — and now we can beat this new Big Brother law.
<br /><br />
Our global outcry has played a leading role in protecting the Internet from governments eager to monitor and control what we do online. Let’s stand together once again — and beat this law for good

• CISPA effectively allows the federal government and corporations to “spy” on citizens. One of the main problems with CISPA is that its intentionally broad language gives corporations both the ability and incentive to share almost any type of information they like with the federal government. It also allows the government to use the information in an almost unlimited fashion.<BR><BR>
• Yes, the bill does contain limitations on the types of information that may be shared (namely: data related to “cyber threats” or “national security”), but the ambiguities of these terms render these limits completely meaningless. Because of this, private communication, like email or messages sent privately through social networks, could be considered fair game. And nothing in the bill requires companies to strip shared information of personally identifiable details — something other cybersecurity bills mandate.<BR><BR>
• Information shared under CISPA could be used for almost any purpose. Despite what CISPA supporters want you to believe, the legislation effectively provides no limits for the types of information that may be shared under the bill. As mentioned above, this is because the bill uses overly broad language to define the relevant terms.<BR><BR><div style=”text-align: center”>
