ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

It's ridiculous, that's what it is. I like my privacy and I damn well would like to keep it. Sometimes human stupidity is astounding x.x

Hi, world, you've all destroyed my faith unanimously, and I must now punch you in the face.

Seriously, politicians and greedy Hollywood jackasses nowadays. <_< (This is Taka, BTW. Been a while. |3)

Still having IRC problems? ;;

And it's telling when the so-called American Dream turns out to be a gigantic sham made to constrict the point of having free speech. Hollywood needs a reality check. :|
