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.
