Anti-Counterfeit Trade Agreement
« on: March 26, 2010, 07:13:43 AM »
Just checked out the latest version of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) proposals online, and I'm not liking the sound of it.  If anyone wants to see what COULD happen...

This is as of last January, leaked earlier this month.  The proceedings have all been done in private.

I don't pirate material except on rare occasions.  I did that a lot more not too long ago, actually, but even if I eventually stop altogether, I still don't like the way this sounds because, if I read correctly, the government gets the rights to take a look at what's on your computer and possibly shut it down after repeated offenses.  That's a terrible breach of the individual right to privacy if I read things properly (keep in mind I have no legal knowledge, and this was a confusing read made even worse by how tired I am, so if someone would correct me I'd appreciate it).

Petition link, which I provided for anyone here who's against it.  I'm going to do a bit more research before signing it myself.

If I got the real message, then I'm going to be pissed if this becomes official? I fear it'd be more of a detriment than any actual "help." And if this ends up leading to the stripping of basic rights...

If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

From what I just saw in the petition, 1428 have signed.

I don't know, it's all confusing, I have no idea what the draft is saying.
Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.
