    Not the biggest fan of the whole parading around in the Guy Fawkes mask and wielding a pirate mask.

    But I can take a moment to sign a petition. Sure.

    I was just about to pen a thread, but I'll stick to post this here:

    http://www.pcworld.in/news/sopas-big-brother-acta-signed-eu-nations-61722012

    Romania, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Greece and most of the EU nations signed today or yesterday, ACTA. Wtf??? How the fuck is this supposed to work? I still can't believe that this can actually work, internet's age is already too old to be handled like that.

    2006 initiated in Japan. That means, Americans will no longer watch anime

    It's hard for me to believe that this would actually work, especially in my country. Actually there is no 'especially'... everywhere is the same

    Obama already signed it,but the Supreme court can overturn what he did. So he doesn't actually have final say in it.

    Latvia has just signed ACTA as well. The funny thing is - no one knew about it, it wasn't even announced at all. Wonder how many other countries signed it that we don't know about.

    The standard pattern of politicians in the pocket of corporate or special interests has been to sneak everything past the public quietly, or else think the cover metaphors they use for their bills will intimidate the opposition from blocking it. "What, you don't like the Patriot Act, are you unpatriotic or something?" Or, "you're against a federal takeover of education? But the bill is called No Child Left Behind! Surely you don't want to leave a child behind, now do you?"

    With SOPA the "anti-piracy" canard was seen through quickly, and so many forces across the web brought visibility to the bill's real agenda, that it caught the establishment by surprise. Clearly the agenda was to erect a "forest" of overlapping law that reinforced each other to crush internet freedom, but with the push back of SOPA each bill can still be stopped. What is needed is not just reactive efforts to stop this or that, but a constitutional amendment that expansively protects internet speech and privacy from the copyright cartel.
