The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) has passed the US House of Representatives, and if the numerous protests against it turn out to be unsuccessful, companies will gain the power to spy on Internet users.

TorrentFreak wanted to show some of the entities that support CISPA what’s it like to be spied on.

So it published a list of movies pirated from BitTorrent sites from IP addresses associated with the US House of Representatives, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the US Senate.

By utilizing Scaneye and the ExtremeTracking service, TorrentFreak has been able to determine that the House staff has been busy visiting adult websites. They’ve also downloaded pirated copies of motion pictures such as Flight, Indiana Jones 5 and Looper.

The Senate staffers allegedly downloaded The Comedian, and episodes of Top Chef and Dirty Jobs.

Finally, the CIA’s employees have been apparently downloading episodes of Archer, Criminal Minds and Bar Rescue.
