Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.
And CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.
The House of Representatives is planning to take up CISPA later this month. Click here to ask your lawmakers to oppose it.
SOPA was pushed as a remedy to the supposed economic threat of online piracy -- but economic fear-mongering didn't quite do the trick.
So those concerned about copyright are engaging in sleight of hand, appending their legislation to a bill that most Americans will assume is about keeping them safe from bad guys.
This so-called cyber security bill aims to prevent theft of "government information" and "intellectual property" and could let ISPs block your access to websites -- or the whole Internet.
Don't let them push this back-door SOPA. Click here to demand that your lawmakers oppose CISPA.
CISPA also encourages companies to share information about you with the government and other corporations.
That data could then be used for just about anything -- from prosecuting crimes to ad placements.
And perhaps worst of all, CISPA supercedes all other online privacy protections.
Please click here to urge your lawmakers to oppose CISPA when it comes up for a vote this month.
Thanks for fighting for the Internet.

Guys, this movie. THIS MOVIE. TEARS IN MY EYES T___________T
It has such an unexpected turn, and I definitely didn't expect the pain in my heart near the end, since it seemed like such a cute and funny, if a bit ironic, movie at first. OH HOW I WAS PROVEN WRONG.
THIS IS DEFINITELY A MUST SEE MOVIE.

ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Trompe L'oeil, bysodakey.Or here at FF.net.
Summary: In Breckenridge, Colorado, Reid sees Gideon for the first time since Gideon left the BAU. Gideon doesn't see Reid.
Comment: It's a gen team fic, and it's rather long, but I was simply blown away not only by the intriguing plot, but also by the spot-on characterization of the whole team. ^__^ I'm a sucker for good summary, so while it's totally unexpected of me to fall in love with the summary, I was really surprised by how engaging the fic is. Then I realize the author is actually the one who wrote In Reverse, why all-time favorite SPN gen fic, and I'm totally, completely, helplessly sold. :DDD
My Heart Under My Feet by Holdur at FF.net
Comment: This is a remix of Bessemerprocess' fic Five Ways Spencer Reid Falls Down. Reid and Elle are the main characters here, and it explores what might happen once they're on the run from the FBI. Fabulous characterization, and the last two sentences in the fic is totally the killer.
The Art of Sacrifice in Chess, also by Holdur at FF.net
Summary: When Gideon leaves, Reid doesn't give up playing chess. Quite the opposite.
Comment: Fabulous look into Reid's head, and how he tries to deal with Gideon leaving.
Bread is to Stone as Fish is to Serpent by Isilya.
Comment: This one's probably been recced to death since it's really *that* awesome, but what the hell, once more wouldn't hurt. :D Can't tell much in the way of summary without spoiling the fic, but let me just say this fic is amazing, the narrator voice is totally believable, and the conclusion is totally unexpected it makes you crave for more :DDD
Lucky by matociquala
Summary: It was Sunday night, and Emily was in an awkward position when the phone rang.
Comment: team case fic, focusing on the girls with many mentions of Reid as an honorary member :P It's fun, and the case is quite believable as well. And Emily! I actually like her here^^. Don't get me wrong, I love her in the series, but often times, fic writers tend to write her as someone who is quite...um. Suffice to say, it's rare to find fics with good characterization of Emily, and this is one of the reason why I love this fic so ^____________^
La Belle Dame Sans Merci by ninhursag and it's sequel, Hold Me Fast and Fear Me Not
Summary: Dark!fic. Someone in Boston is killing young men and it's disturbing Reid's dreams. (some hints of Reid/JJ on the sequel)
Comment: It's a fairy fic! :D only darker. Much darker. And the fairies here would totally get edited out of kids' books, if you know what I'm saying. The imagery here is so stark I just..... *_____* And we get to see Reid still reeling from his experience with Hankel and trying to hide it, and JJ trying to care without being obvious about it. Also there's a bonus where JJ is being a badass in the sequel. :DDD
Slide a.k.a That JJ/Reid Pr0n You Don't Know You Wanted also by ninhursag
Summary: JJ's very convincing when she wants to be.
Comment: Totally seconding the title. *ahem*. 'nuff said.
Hmm... maybe that's it for now. I've realized that Despite its rating success, Criminal Minds' fandom is actually rather small. >__<
Also, if you have any recs for me, please don't hesitate to tell me! :DDD
