    Congratulations to all people that fought for this cause. I personally have contacted all Bulgarian representatives in the EU parliament and asked them to vote against ACTA. Many people have done the same and that is the result :) Lets hope that they will not come up with something else and vote it secretly.

    Wish the US would get its act together. The movie and record industry buys Congressmen like they were $1,000 a night hookers over here!

    I wouldn't be so happy about this. You see.. there's a rule in mass brainwashing of a people, firstly done by the comunists, and it worked almost perfectly, so "almost perfectly" that today it's applied to marketing, sales, you name it. It goes like this:

    Let's say you are the government, the ruler, the king, the dictator or ruling bunch of people somewhere. And you have a lot of people under you, some stupid, some smart, some plain retards to control. And you want to, let's say, raise the price of bread to an unjustified value, for whatever reason (to cover country debts, costs, whatever), but still be in control and not laying on the ground with a bullet in your head. Here's what you do:

    1) Let's consider the bread price at 1$. You want to raise it to 3$ (and gain 2$ in taxes or whatnot).
    2) You announce in the media that next month the price for one bread will be 5$ due to [insert your propaganda text here]. That will get the people angry, will start fuss, debates, el mother of revolucion.
    3) You let them boil for a while.
    4) When things get really hot, but still under control, you announce that the bread raise will be 3$ instead of 5$ because of [insert your EPIC method of budget recalculation that saved the world here]. That will make the crowds think they've won and dance in the streets and shouting things like "yeah we got them bastards", "yeah in strength we have power", "yeah power to the people", "yeah if you think it you achieve it" type of bullshit. Does this sound familiar to you BHW marketers? Maybe you used this method to some extent in the past?! Think about sales letters, lol.

    So what the final outcome (and this is the genius part) is that you manage to triple the price of a necessary item but at the same time keep the people happy. Add a little twist or more, scale it up and you have today's marketing techniques, you have sales techniques, all based on this method.

    But remember, this method was thought up in the 1950-1960's. That's some 40-50 years ago by some really really really clever people. Now imagine what tehniques they come up with now, because the fuckers have been doing this since, and got better and better at it in those 40 years.

    So I expect in the near future to be served by the guys we "ass kicked" some baby-ACTA version that we'll embrace with big smiles and call it our daughter.

    And remember kids, nothing, NOTHING a government or a state official does is random, they have a plan, a big ass plan, thought up to the last possible outcome, calculated to the last decimal, and executed like a boss. Because at the end of the day, they're the best of the best when it comes to manipulation of the masses. We're small fry trying to execute THEIR "WSO's" that they "leak" from time to time.

    Cheers.

    Glad that ACTA isn't going to become law, but in reality it wasn't going to be enforced like people said,due to the large numbers of passengers at airports. For example just the top 10(minus Ireland) in international traffic brings 31 million people to London heathrow airport. It would be nearly impossible to check everyone's phone,mp3 player and laptop without spending billions a year in additional equipment and workers.

    Good decision, but it will come back with a vengeance. Lobbyists keep lobbying hard.
