ACTA is worse than SOPA! And nobody knows about it.

    There is another one called OPEN... It seems to be the best of the bunch but has gotten almost 0 Media coverage! Perhaps someone would be kind enough to post a link to OPEN (google it) I would but am still rather new here and am not allowed ot post links as of yet.

    Cheers

    If I was america right now, I'd feel so ashamed because of my country. America doesn't know what they are doing (like usual).

    I don't think you understand, this is not just the U.S. There's a lot of countries involved, including the EU.

    Don't think there's any difference between being in Europe or being in America. They have the same agenda.

    This will effect the whole world! I can't believe it's even being brushed off as just America. It's pretty scary!

    Good luck earning an income on internet with that attitude..

    DO you even realize that it won't ONLY effect the people doing shady stuff?

    You're Telling me that you've never done anything to related to copyright infringements? Have you never downloaded WSO's on BHW? Never downloaded cracked stuff oh the web? Never downloaded free movies?

    If so then hats off to you!!

    No, I have never done any of that stuff...

    In fact, I did get sued by a multi-billion dollar gaming company in 2005 for copyright infringement and I won.

    When I walk on the black hat side I cover my ass.

    Only idiots will get run over by "SOPA" and "ACTA" and any other gay acronym they can dream up

    You're obviously too ignorant to understand that this doesn't just effect you, it effects the freedoms of everybody.

    Agreed.

    If you have nothing to hide, you should be okay letting the government monitor all of your real life, and internet activity

















    Wait no,

    That's a police state.

    Lol. Point out my mistake?:shrug:

    Also, it seems you sir are the sheep. I am doing nothing but spreading awareness about something that will strip the freedoms of everybody online.

    How would you like somebody peering in your window while you shower? Or watching you make out with your girlfriend on the couch.
    It's the exact same thing.

    If you truly believe that ACTA is a good thing then you're an idiot. I'm sorry. I don't mean to offend you, but I am merely stating the facts.

    Could you please give me one reason why ACTA might actually be a good thing? What could we, the people gain out of it?

    My point is simply this:

    The real pros aren't sweating idiots that try to "regulate" things they don't understand. I have personally been challenged and I ran circles around them.

    The idiots in Washington have nothing on us.

    Good for you man, really. (I'm not actually being sarcastic)

    But this isn't about you. It's about everyone. How many people are going to have their lives ruined by these greedy assholes just because they download a few movies. Think about it.

    Some would say we have a right to share things online.
    We have a right to free speech.
    And we definitely have a right to not have everything we do online watched.

    Think about that too. :rolleyes:
