The other day, Declan McCullagh of CNET reported that Microsoft had backed away from its support of CISPA. I reported that here but questioned how much it had really backed away given a very nonspecific statement it made.
Yesterday, Brendan Sasso reported that Microsoft denied it had backed away from supporting CISPA:
“Microsoft’s position remains unchanged,” Christina Pearson, a Microsoft spokeswoman, said in a statement to The Hill. “We supported the work done to pass cybersecurity bills last week in the House of Representatives and look forward to continuing to work with all stakeholders as the Senate takes up cybersecurity legislation.”
The statement shoots down reports that the technology company was wavering in its support of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).
