ACTA – the secret copyright treaty which threatens the Internet…seriously!


The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (or secret copyright treaty as it’s being called) is as perniciously nasty a piece of proposed legislation as you’re likely to find anywhere on the planet. Ostensibly being created to defend the rights of copyright owners, this is yet another instance of stupid government serving the narrow agendas of greed of the massive entertainment corporations. This is not good law.

Unless we all want the dead soul less hand of government stamping out our freedom to communicate, every single Internet user on the globe should protest this slimy proposal in every way possible. Don’t put it off, make excuses or let apathy rule, make sure you do it. If you don’t, as sure as eggs are rotten, we’ll see full blown censorship, selective shutdown and worse arrive next. And that’s the reality of this stuff, folks,

We need to stop it now. Dead. And warn future governments that the Internet has now moved on beyond something that can be controlled by uninformed, self-serving bureaucrats with an agenda and funding from big business.


  • So, according to the graphic you posted along with this story, Republicans are fascists because the Obama administration wants to stifle freedom of speech on the Internet? How does that work?

    • Ah no, sorry Mark, I just grabbed the first free graphic with Fascism written on it. Not really playing party politics here, they're all at the same game as far as I can see.

    • Just checking. I did learn that ACTA originated with the Bush Administration but I have no idea if the version that Obama is pushing here is the same or not given the secrecy of the details. Either way, I agree with your assessment of the bill itself.

  • I don't trust anything Obama wants to do or anything he says. He has proven himself to be a liar, and obviously doesn't have the best interest of the American people in mind. I don't care what party he claims to be, he is not good for our nation. My words don't matter, time will tell. It's just too bad that so many people are not aware of what is really happening.
