ACTA, Hidden corperate control of internet for the world
I don't like to push politics here, but this effects everyone on the planet that uses the internet (like you now).
Make a stand now, or forever be controlled by corporate America..
You may or may not have heard of the ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement).
Maybe not as it has been done in secret
The first big wrong of it as It's blatantly anti-constitutional (USA).
They proclaim (the real people behind ACTA) the agreement is designed to reduce the flow of fake physical goods.
But it's real purpose is to control the internet for the entire world, and make everyone an instant criminal if they (knowingly or not) download something that might be copyrighted.
It's an obvious flanking maneuver heavily funded (read, bought politicians) by MPAA and RIAA corporate lobbyists.
Being secret, and hiding the broad sweeping internet laws behind the guise of "reducing the flow of fake physical goods across borders".
The entertainment industry seeks to make everyone a criminal, and anything that cuts into there profits illegal regardless of anyone's rights, and lively hood et al.
Circumventing "Internet neutrality" laws, making ISPs responsible for what users download, and making them spies on their customers, will almost certainly result directly in increased internet rates for everyone world wide.
Also IMHO this will just push yet more industries off shore (out of the USA).
Plus these people are totally trying to circumvent the legal process by bypassing congressional oversight, thus not allowing America to even have a say in it.
Read about it here, and if you are in the USA you can write to stop it:https://secure.eff.org/site/Advocacy?cm ... ion&id=451
Else if you are outside of the USA, you can make people aware of this and ask your government to refuse all of the internet parts in it!
More and more corporate world is just thumbing it's nose, and giving the middle finger to the world!
They don't care about our today nor our tomorrow.
It's all about profit at what ever the short and long term costs to any individual or group.
