What is in a name

Sometimes you find the same abbreviations in the same field. Take CISPA as an example.

CISPA – the competence centre – submitted the application for government funding before the introduction of CISPA – the law -, so it looks like the competence centre came up with the name first. However, there are groups lobbying against the law, and some weeks ago I noticed a banner on the Google search engine: „help defeat CISPA“. Bad luck for the competence centre, I guess…
