This I like:

Neelie Kroes, speaking at a conference in Berlin, told delegates: “We have recently seen how many thousands of people are willing to protest against rules which they see as constraining the openness and innovation of the Internet.

“This is a strong new political voice. And as a force for openness, I welcome it, even if I do not always agree with everything it says on every subject.

“We are now likely to be in a world without SOPA and without ACTA.”

Her spokesman agreed that while Ms. Kroes never said ACTA was dead, the “political reality” is that it is.

Yep ... reminds me of the protests in #Montreal . If we funnelled our love of protests towards something good it'd be awesome.

Thank you, +Alexis Ohanian for all the work you've done to help stop legislation that wants to turn the freedom we've acquired with the Internet. It's clear some people are not happy with it, but there are forces to help us.

Also, <3 reddit for its contributions.
funny how those who "fight for "new" rulez to favor themselves" for the internet medium sound just like the younger Murdochs, Turner and Whittles who "demanded" the same deregulated media 30 years ago.
new moguls same as the old...
when did innovation just come to mean exploitation of those who dont know to opt out;)
