Why not just re-name it 'Corporate States of America'?
After all, it appears that shareholder's rights are more important than free speech rights. God forbid that we have a government of the people, by the people, for the people! Remember, all men were created equal, but some men (and token women) are more equal than others....
Mike Lynn, a former researcher at Internet Security Systems, is under attack for speaking out about a problem with Cisco's router security. The problem has been fixed by Cisco, so theoretically there's no harm that could come from Mr. Lynn speaking, but Cisco and ISS have decided to shut him up anyhow, even to the point of suing him until the rubble glows.
It is sad that in a day and age when Rush Limbaugh can freely speak that "Liberalism is the focus of all evil in America" and Ann Coulter can freely say that liberals should be shot "in order to teach them a lesson", a man cannot speak freely about a threat to the health of the American economy... in Soviet America, apparently only Party apparatchniks have free speech. Or penguins too irrelevant to bother with attempting to squash.
