Is CISPA not a problem?

I just learned the House passed CISPA on Thursday, and it's headed for Congress. This is basically SOPA all over again, where half the internet shut down in protest.
But apparently this time, so far, only Anonymous has spoken up. Is Obama so likely to veto it?

 It's passage in the Senate

 Its passage in the Senate is highly doubtful and Obama has said he will veto it if it somehow does make it to his desk, so it probably isn't a problem. I think it is a problem that the issue is still being pushed though. It is probably only a matter of time before a similar law is passed. Even those who vote against it often say "we need to do something", the phrase that inevitably leads to a loss of freedom.
