True. It'd probably make everyone's life much much worse somehow.
Let's get dangerous!

Another draconian copyright/security bill in the works! 100 members of the US Congress are trying to pass a bill that would let them spy on every Internet user without a warrant: http://www.eurasiare...and-censorship/

that sounds bad.

A man goes to the doctor. Says he's depressed. He says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. The doctor says "The treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him, that should pick you up." The man bursts into tears. He says "But doctor... I am Pagliacci."

Yes it's a new attack. And the article says that this time, Facebook, Microsoft, IBM and AT&T support this bill.

As FB said regarding the new attack (after a petition brought them out of the dark) "The overriding goal of any cybersecurity bill should be to protect the security of networks and private data, and we take any concerns about how legislation might negatively impact Internet users’ privacy seriously."

Petitions have played an important part in all this, so far.

The current EU's rapporteur for Acta has strongly advised that the ratification of the treaty should not happen: http://www.bbc.co.uk...nology-17728045

In another article he says ACTA would force ISP's, hosting sites, and search engines, to play the role of a private police (which they are not and should not be) at the service of intellectual property (and the content cartel of course) he says that's not acceptable to him.

ACTA smacked down by the European Parliament with 478 votes against vs 39 supporting, 165 abstentions.

I disagree. In fact, I believe this is the only thread you should post in.

I really think this should be unpinned. Ease the clutter.
