“As a member of Congress, [ACTA] is more dangerous than SOPA. It’s not coming to me for a vote. It purports that it does not change existing laws. But once implemented, it creates a whole new enforcement system and will virtually tie the hands of Congress to undo it," U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R. – Calif.
ACTA is by no means a new initiative. Posts about the act, which seeks to normalize copyright protection and intellectual property standards across participating nations, started emerging online as early as 2008. But the temperature is finally rising for ACTA, and at least one Congressman now publicly sees it as a greater threat than SOPA.
What do you think? Is #ACTA bigger, badder and more worrisome than #SOPA and #PIPA, or is Issa simply trying to steer votes to his own legislation?
